The University of Southern Mississippi will celebrate Homecoming on Oct. 20, when the Golden Eagles football team welcomes the University of Texas-San Antonio to M.M. Roberts Stadium.
USM's Alumni Association announced last week that a series of events will take place during the week leading up to the football game, including the 20th annual Southern Miss Alumni Homecoming Scholarship Golf Tournament and the Alumni Hall of Fame banquet.
"Homecoming at Southern Miss is a special invitation for all Golden Eagles to return home to their alma mater," said Jerry DeFatta, USM Alumni Association executive director. "It is always an exciting time to be on campus and to experience the energy that makes Southern Miss so special."
