This coming Saturday on Christmas Eve the University of Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles will be playing Nevada in the Hawaii Bowl in Honolulu.
We wish the team great success and congratulate them once again on their outstanding 11-win season and Conference USA Championship. They have a lot to be proud of. Unfortunately, this scenario underscores just how broken the whole college bowl system is. Had Southern Miss lost to highly ranked Houston in the Conference Championship game…Houston would have gone to a bigger and more lucrative bowl and divided the money with the other Conference USA teams.
