S. Mississippi breaks drought, beats UAB 62-27
SOUTHERN MISS 62, UAB 27
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Nick Mullens threw a career-high five
touchdown passes and rushed for another on Saturday as Southern
Miss secured its first victory of the season, 62-27 over UAB.
The Golden Eagles (1-11, 1-7 Conference USA) trailed by eight
points at the start of the third quarter. Mullens led a 28-0
rally with three touchdown passes and a 1-yard touchdown rush to
put Southern Miss ahead by 20 points at the start of the fourth.
He threw for 370 yards.
A loss to the Blazers would have given Southern Miss
back-to-back winless seasons, something that has only happened
once in the last 30 years.
Jonathan Perry threw two touchdown passes to Jamarcus Nelson,
who finished with a game-high 117 yards receiving for UAB (2-10,
1-7). The Blazers are last in total defense in the Conference
USA, allowing an average of 500.2 yards per game. Southern Miss
amassed 472 yards in the matchup.
