JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Southern Miss' first attempt at beating a team from a BCS conference didn't go so well.

But two weeks after a nationally televised 41-13 loss to South Carolina, the Golden Eagles (1-1) get a second chance to make a good impression when they host Big 12 opponent Kansas (1-1) on Friday night in Hattiesburg.

It's hard for Southern Miss to know what to make of the Jayhawks.

Kansas shockingly lost to North Dakota State 6-3 in a season opener that brought boos from the home crowd during coach Turner Gill's first game.

Then the Jayhawks turned around and shocked No. 15 Georgia Tech 28-25.

Southern Miss recovered from its season-opening loss by beating Prairie View 34-7 on Saturday at Roberts Stadium.

The Golden Eagles have a nine-game home winning streak.
