In a game from Week 5 of the NCAAF, we will see the teams of Rice Owls at Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles on Saturday at M. M. Roberts Stadium, Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
Southern Miss started their conference battle with a win over UTEP last week. They dominated the game and scored 34 points while allowing only 7. The Owls are still looking for their first win of the season as they started 0-4(0-2 against Conference sides). They had a tough game last week when they went to overtime with North Texas but they went on to lose this game. Last season, the Golden Eagles beat the Owls 65-10 and I think something like that will happen again. Curtis Mikell has been playing terrific so far and he is intercepting so many passes. For example, he had 2 interceptions last week and he returned one of them for a 100-yard touchdown.
I think Zack Greenlee will have a difficult time against the Eagles’ defense because he still hasn’t found his groove and accuracy yet. That’s why I predict an easy for the Golden Eagles.
