USM Accepts bid the R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl

The University of Southern Mississippi announced Wednesday that they have accepted a bid to the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl.

The game will be played Dec. 21, at 7:15 p.m., at the Louisiana Superdome.

The Golden Eagles will play the Sun Belt Champion, which will be either Troy or Arkansas State. The two schools are slated to play, Saturday, to determine the league crown.

The Golden Eagles, which are vying for its 15th-straight winning season, will be playing in its seventh consecutive bowl game and 11th postseason appearance in the last 12 years. Southern Miss has appeared in 18 bowls all-time and posted an 8-10 record.

This will be the Golden Eagles third appearance in the New Orleans Bowl. They are 2-0 in the event, having defeating North Texas 31-10 in 2004 and Arkansas State 31-19 in 2005. The 2005 game was played in Lafayette, La., due to Hurricane Katrina.

Tickets for the game are $40 for sidelines and $20 for students and can be purchased through the Pat Ferlise Athletic Ticket Office on West 4th St., from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday, over the phone at 1-800-844-TICK (8425) or online at SouthernMiss.com.
