Southern Miss (2-0) vs. Troy (1-1) Game Preview

Game Time: 7:00 pm
Venue: M.M. Roberts Stadium, Hattiesburg, MI

Southern Miss has looked every bit the part of the Conference USA favorite – or at least close to it – beating Kentucky on the road to kick things off and then taking it easy on Savannah State in a 56-0 stomping that could’ve been a whole lot worse.
The stats are skewed after playing Savannah State, but the offense has been unstoppable, the defense came through against Kentucky, and looking ahead, even with three games in the next four after this, it’ll be smooth sailing after going to LSU.
Unless Troy plays like it did last week against Clemson.
This is supposed to be a more dangerous and talented Trojan team with a good offense, but it was the defense that almost got it done in Death Valley with a good-enough performance to make it tight late.
Shockingly, the run defense stuffed the Tigers for just 122 yards, while Deshaun Watson struggled and sputtered even though there wasn’t a ton of pressure.
Troy should be just that good, but so is Southern Miss. Nick Mullens threw three interceptions against Kentucky, and he gave one away against the Tigers last week, but he’ll be on in a battle of the bombers. He and Troy’s Brandon Silvers will put on a show, but the Golden Eagle offense will be a bit stronger as the game goes on at home.
