    Saturday marked the first time under head coach Jay Hopson that Southern Miss lost a game when holding its opponent to under 100 yards rushing and 300 yards of total offense. The Golden Eagles' defensive effort in their 24-17 loss to Kentucky is one of the positives Hopson took away from the game, especially the play of senior defensive tackle Rody Crayton.
