Southern Mississippi did not lose last week that is the good news. The bad news is they did not lose because they did not play in the game as it was postponed. The week before that the Golden Eagles picked up a 41-31 win over North Texas. With the win the Golden Eagles moved up to a 1-3 record on the year.

Jack Abraham has been the leader of the Golden Eagles passing offense while going 85/132 for 112 yards. He has ended up with 7 touchdowns, but was picked off only 3 times on the year. Rushing for Southern Miss has been led by Frank Gore Jr. with 46 carries for 208 yards and 1 touchdown.

UTEP is coming to the game here after losing in their last game to Louisiana Tech. The good news is the loss for the Miners was only by a 21-17 score and that was definitely not a good showing for the Miners offense, but did help showcase their offense. The loss dropped UTEP to a 3-2 record on the year so far.

Gavin Hardison was the leading quarterback for UTEP in the game. Hardison ended up going 18/38 for 206 yards with a touchdown, but did get picked off in the game. The Miners were led by Deion Hankins who carried the ball 15 times for only 35 yards in the game.

UTEP Miners +6.5

On the year UTEP has been able to play good on the year. Look for the Miners offense to come into the game here playing good still and that will lead to the Miners getting the win locked down rather easily as Southern Miss does not have that good of an offense in the game and is contained by the UTEP defense. Final Score Prediction, UTEP Miners win 28-7.
