What’s Going To Happen
Okay, Southern Miss. Enough playing around.
The Golden Eagles have been on the cusp of bowl eligibility over the last two games and couldn’t get it done. But with Rice this week and Charlotte to follow, there won’t be a problem finally getting that sixth win.
But do it already.
Rice can’t do anything right this year, on a seven-game losing streak since beating UTEP and without being all that close along the way. There have been a few hopeful moments, but the offense can’t make up for the problems on defense.
Rice doesn’t score enough, and it has a nightmare of a problem winning the turnover margin. Last in the nation in the category, the Owls have given away 26 turnovers and come up with just five takeaways.
Southern Miss isn’t all that careful with the ball, but the defense is a rock against the run and doesn’t allow much happening deep – the Owl offense won’t suddenly find itself.
Finally, the Eagles will start scoring again with a few early touchdowns to put this out of reach before the game gets started. Rice won’t be able to throw in the second half to get back in it.
