Southern Miss (1-1) vs. Troy (1-0) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
It’s one of those telling early season games that will define the winner. Southern Miss did what it was supposed to – beat Alcorn State and lost to Mississippi State – but with Alabama coming up, a loss to Troy would mean a 1-3 start and an uphill climb to easily get to six wins.
This is one of the best teams in Conference USA, and this is the week to play like it.
Troy has yet to show anything, beating up on Campbell before getting two weeks off to prepare.
This is the week the USM defense shows up and makes a statement. The passing game has been able to push the ball down the field a bit, and the D has been good so far, but it’ll be the pass rush that takes over and controls the game early on. The Trojan offensive line is fine, but QB Kaleb Barker will be under siege all game long.
