The throwback look is complete for the Conference USA opener.

Southern Miss revealed the helmets they will wear Saturday to honor the 1997 squad. It's the 20th anniversary of a team that won 9 games, the Liberty Bowl, and finished #19 in the AP Top 25.


Southern Miss welcomes a North Texas squad that features the top offense so far in C-USA.

"I know they present a challenge, they're a good football team," head coach Jay Hopson said. "They wouldn't be number one in Conference USA in offense if they weren't a good football team. Certainly a challenge to our defense."

It's Golden Eagles and Mean Green Saturday at 6pm at The Rock. You can watch the game online at
