Over is 4-0 in Golden Eagles last 4 games in December.
Over is 5-0 in Golden Eagles last 5 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.
My Prediction: Nevada blew their chance at winning the WAC by losing 2 of their last 3 games to LA Tech and Utah State. The Wolfpack are playing their 2nd Hawaii Bowl in 3 years. They were dominated by SMU in 2009. Southern Mississippi is flying high right now after winning 9 of their last 10 including a C-USA Championship over previously unbeaten Houston. This Golden Eagles team is very underrated on both sides of the ball. I feel they will easily beat the injury riddles Nevada team.
Southern Mississippi -6
