USM seeking revenge, title, win No. 10 against UAB

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Southern Miss is seeking a milestone, a title and revenge against UAB.

The 22nd-ranked Golden Eagles can clinch the Conference USA East Division title with a win over the Blazers Thursday night at Legion Field.

A victory would also give them 10 wins for the third time in the program's history and first since 1988.

Plus, Southern Miss would like a little revenge from last season's double-overtime 50-49 loss to the Blazers.

Golden Eagles coach Larry Fedora says he's not sure how much of a factor that is for his players, but adds that "I don't know how they could forget it."

Quarterback Austin Davis needs 93 passing yards to reach 10,000 for his career.

The Blazers are three-touchdown underdogs and have 1 of the nation's worst defenses.
