Miners ready for "physical" Southern Miss
After two consecutive wins, the Miners are relatively injury free. Which is good because they will need all hands on deck when they face a hard-hitting Southern Miss squad who is atop the C-USA Eastern Division.
"It's going to be a slugfest. Because that's the way our two teams are becoming. Very physical. Now, whether it's a shootout and lots of points, it could be that," said UTEP head coach Mike Price.
The Eagles come into the game ranked #25 in the USA Today/Coaches poll and only have one loss on the year. The Miners meanwhile will be playing for their first 3 game win streak since 2005.
