Southern Miss will have one more shot at bowl eligibility this Saturday when they take on the University of Louisiana-Monroe.
Golden Eagles head coach Will Hall, who’s in year two at the helm, says a bowl game would be monumental for the program.
“I came here to get this great program back and bring pride to the Pine Belt area and bring pride back to our people,” Hall said. “In year two, from what we inherited, if we could get to a bowl game, that would be a huge deal for our fans and also for our kids. I feel like these kids really deserve it and I hope we can get it done.”
With a win, Southern Miss (5-6, 3-4 Sun Belt) will head to the postseason for the first time since 2019. Kickoff against the Warhawks (4-7, 3-4) at Malone Stadium in Monroe is set for 4 p.m. CT. The game can be streamed on ESPN+.
