~@WatcH//TV~ Southern Mississippi vs. Tulane Live Stream, 2020 NCAA College Football FreE

September 26 at 8:00 am5:00 pm EDT

There are a lot of red faces on the Tulane Green Wave and the Southern Miss Golden Eagles heading into their Week 4 meeting in Hattiesburg.

Whether it’s due to anger or embarrassment, it’s all motivation to hit the field hard for the non-conference tilt at M. M. Roberts Stadium. Both programs are licking their wounds after losing late and in dramatic fashion last Saturday.

“Obviously, we’d like to have it back,” Green Wave head coach Willie Fritz told the AP after blowing a 24-0 lead to Navy in a 27-24 setback decided on a field goal as time expired.

“This is tough,” linebacker Nick Anderson told the AP after getting upstaged in Tulane’s first appearance on ABC in 40 years. “It’s something we’ve got to swallow and man up.”

Meanwhile, the Golden Eagles allowed a fourth-down touchdown pass to beat them with 14 seconds remaining in a 31-30 nailbiter with Conference USA West Division rival Louisiana Tech.

The last-minute loss spoiled the debut for Southern Miss interim head coach Scott Walden, who stepped into the role after Jay Hopson resigned shortly after the Golden Eagles’ Sept. 7 season-opening loss, citing new leadership was needed after going 28-23 in his tenure.

So now Walden and his team look to dig themselves out from an 0-2 hole while Tulane is hoping to bounce back on the road before getting back to American Athletic Conference play. These teams also met in January in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl, a game the Green Wave won handily, 30-13. Despite that victory, Southern Miss holds a commanding 23-8 edge in the overall series.

When Tulane Has the Ball
There’s not much really new about the Tulane offense under Fritz this year, even though there’s a new face toting the rock a ton.

Yes, it’s run-oriented — rolling up 265 rushing yards last weekend against Navy — with freshman running back Tyjae Spears as the lead man, with 18 carries for 119 yards last Saturday and 224 for the season. Sophomore Cameron Carroll is second on the team with 88 yards on the ground.

So for Tulane, the run game seems to be the best way to get things done, especially with the young guys. Or maybe it’s because the Green Wave just don’t get enough consistency from senior quarterback Keon Howard. He’s prone to turnovers and a tough one to hang your hat on. Case in point, Howard was just 10-of-25 for 108 passing yards and one interception in last week’s collapse.

But Tulane is trying to get its passing game revved up by using plenty of pass catchers — 10 different ones so far in 2020. Sophomore Jha’Quan Jackson, who is billed as the team’s playmaker, and junior Phat Watts have just four receptions apiece to share the team lead through two games.

And finding consistency against Southern Miss may be in the cards considering the Golden Eagles’ early struggles on defense. After ranking 18th nationally against the run last season, USM has given up 163 rushing yards in each of the first two games. That’s not a good sign against a team that prefers to run the ball.

When Southern Miss Has the Ball
The Golden Eagles differ from Tulane when it comes to confidence in the quarterback position. Senior Jack Abraham is considered one of the best at his position among the Group of 5 conferences and he’s started out by completing 72 percent of his passes for 578 yards. Last week, he went 24-of-32 for 264 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the close loss to Louisiana Tech.
