Southern Miss routs Kansas

It was Friday at the rock instead of Saturday.  It didn't seem to matter though.  ESPN was in the house.  The Rock was rocking.  Kansas didn't stand a chance from the start.  

Austin Davis looked good early as he lead his team down the field on their opening possession with little trouble.  With the ball on the one-yard line, Coach Fedora dialed up a trick play when V.J. Floyd took a handoff, then tossed a one-yard touchdown to Jonathan Massey.  Southern Miss took the lead 7-0 early in the first quarter.  After a reverse trick play from USM that resulted in an interception, the Jayhawks could only put up three points with a 37-yard field goal by Branstetter. 

Late in the 2nd quarter, Desmond Johnson gets the call as he takes the handoff to the left and races to the end zone untouched.  Southern Miss goes up 14-3.  On the ensuing drive for Kansas with the ball at their own 29-yard line, Tim Green blocked the punt and Deron Wilson took it in for the TD.  The Golden Eagles go up 21-3 at the half. 

Kansas came out the half firing on all cylinders as Jordan Webb took his team down the field in 3:35 on 11 plays and capped the drive with an eight-yard run by running back Deshaun Sands.  The rest of the 3rd quarter would go back and forth with punts from both teams until Austin Davis caps off a 15 play, 80-yard drive with a one-yard rushing touchdown just before the quarter ends.  Desmond Johnson gets his 2nd TD of the night off a screen pass had a personal foul call not been called.  Southern Miss settles for three points late in the 4th quarter.  Kansas gets a late touchdown to bring the score a little closer.  Southern Miss beats Kansas at home by the final score of 31-16.
