Hundreds of fans turned out and turned up at the Duff Athletic Center this evening to welcome back the victorious Golden Eagles after their bus ride from Birmingham, Alabama.
The Black and Gold's 62 points were the most scored by the team since they dropped 63 on Navy in a victory on the road in 2011.
"Man this feels great because the past two years this team [has] been through a lot without winning a game and it took tonight for us to get the 'W'," senior wide receiver Dominique Sullivan said.
"Coach [Todd] Monken just kept talking to us [about] never giving up and keep working."
Fellow senior Octavius Thomas echoed his teammates sentiments.
"It feels great because during the beginning of the season we had high expectations for each other. It's just we're sorry it took so long. Coach Monken is a great coach. He's a players coach. I'm just sorry it took so long for him to get this "W."
The head coach was relieved to finally end the program's 23-game losing streak.
"That's why you do it. Everything that you do is to sing the fight song in the locker room with everybody else that's there. It's something that no drug or alcohol can make you feel the same way that it does to do as a group of people and have success."
Southern Miss won the turnover margin five to one.
