Renewal of USM-NCSU series set for television

HATTIESBURG — Southern Mississippi's football game at North Carolina State on Saturday will be shown nationally on ESPNU at noon ET. The fledgling ESPN offshoot network is carried on satellite by DirectTV (Channel 609) and Dish Network (Channel 148).

This will be the ninth meeting between the two schools, with the series tied at four wins apiece.

Saturday’s game marks the first meeting between the two teams at Carter-Finley Stadium. The most recent match-up resulted in a Wolfpack win in the 1990 All-American Bowl, which was USM head coach Jeff Bower’s debut.

Southern Miss and N.C. State played each season from 1958-63 and again in 1966. Southern Miss won the first two meetings, both in Mobile, AL, 26-14 in 1958 and 19-14 in 1959.

The Wolfpack won 20-13 in Hattiesburg in 1960 and followed that up with a 7-6 victory in 1961 in Mobile. The Golden Eagles defeated N.C. State 30-0 in Mobile in 1962 and the Wolfpack claimed a 14-0 win in Hattiesburg in 1963.

A game in 1966 between the teams, which was played in Norfolk, VA, was won by Southern Miss 7-6.

USM enters the game with a 4-2 record, 3-1 in Conference USA. The Golden Eagles are on a two-game winning streak following a 37-28 victory last Friday at UAB.

N.C. State is 2-4 overall, 1-4 record in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Wolfpack is coming off two consecutive losses, 31-10 to Clemson and 27-19 to Wake Forest.

From a Southern Miss release.
