San Antonio, TX -

For the fourth straight game, Southern Miss started a game off slow. For the second game this season, it cost the Golden Eagles.

Southern Miss (4-2, 2-1 C-USA) lost 55-32 to UTSA (2-3, 1-1 C-USA) Saturday afternoon in the Alamodome.

Despite owning the advantage in time of possession, first downs and total yards, the Golden Eagles fell to a Roadrunner team that came into Saturday’s contest averaging just over 20 points a game.

Ultimately, giving up big plays to UTSA – including two touchdowns of 70 yards or more – and committing three turnovers led to Southern Miss’ first conference loss of the season.

Golden Eagle head coach Jay Hopson is proud of the fight his team showed but knows Southern Miss has to clean up its mistakes with a road trip against LSU (3-2) next on the schedule.
