News

Hattiesburg, MS (Sports Network) - Southern Mississippi has accepted an invitation to play in the Beef O'Brady's Bowl.

The game will take place at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida on December 21 against an opponent from the Big East.

"We are extremely excited about the opportunity to play in St. Petersburg in Florida," said Southern Miss head coach Larry Fedora. "It is a great area with great weather and we have the opportunity to play a quality opponent from the Big East. We are thrilled about being able to play another game."

Southern Miss finished the regular season 8-4 and will play in a bowl game for the ninth straight year. The Golden Eagles lost to Middle Tennessee in last year's New Orleans Bowl and beat Troy in the same bowl game the year before.

It will be the 21st bowl game for Southern Miss, which has a bowl record of 9-11. The Eagles' last bowl appearance in Florida came in a 19-17 loss to Missouri in the 1981 Tangerine Bowl.
