What to Know

The Tulane Green Wave and the Southern Miss Golden Eagles have had some time off and are no doubt ready to hit the field. Bowl season is underway, and Tulane and Southern Miss will compete for postseason bragging rights in the Armed Forces Bowl at Amon G. Carter Stadium at 11:30 a.m. ET on Saturday. The Green Wave are limping into the matchup on a three-game losing streak.

The Green Wave received a tough blow four weeks ago as they fell 37-20 to the SMU Mustangs. No one had a big game offensively for Tulane, but they got scores from RB Corey Dauphine and RB Cameron Carroll.

Meanwhile, the game between Southern Miss and the Florida Atlantic Owls four weeks ago was not a total blowout, but with Southern Miss falling 34-17, it was darn close to turning into one. Like the Green Wave, Southern Miss didn't have any clear offensive standouts, but they got one touchdown from QB Jack Abraham.

The Green Wave are now 6-6 while the Golden Eagles sit at 7-5. Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Green Wave rank 13th in the nation when it comes to rushing yards per game, with 249.8 on average. On the other end of the spectrum, Southern Miss is 13th worst in the nation in rushing yards per game, with only 122.4 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against Southern Miss.
