HATTIESBURG, MS -

"We’re coming with it, we legit,” said Southern Miss junior wide receiver Marquise Ricard. “We're pretty good. But we have to keep it going each week."

There’s no doubt the Golden Eagles are legit. If they didn't prove that last weekend they confirmed it on Saturday night. Southern Miss able to do anything they wanted and get anyone involved in their 56-0 win over Savannah State.

"We know how last week how we upset at Kentucky, that could've easily have been us this week,” said USM junior running back Ito Smith. “So, we couldn't take them lightly."

"No matter if our opponent was Kentucky, Alabama, Savannah State, don't play down to your opponent,” Ricard said. “Always play your game."

Southern Miss' game starts with passing. Golden Eagle senior quarterback Nick Mullens able to spread it around Saturday with nine receivers catching a pass and four different wide outs scoring a touchdown. Mullens says it makes it easy when you have so many playmakers who all want their hands on the rock.

"When you have that sort of competition but also brotherhood to go along with it, it makes everybody better,” Mullens said. “When you can throw a five-yard route for a 60-yard touchdown, that makes everyone's job easier."

"It's not a rocket science offense,” Ricard said. “If you have the talent we will find you."

Certainly, the Golden Eagles have the talent but head coach Jay Hopson knows it takes more than that to win football games.

"One thing that I am probably the most proud of is we prepared well this week and were focused,” Hopson said. “But we know we got a big test coming up next week. We’ll enjoy it tonight but we're going to get ready tomorrow."
