Southern Miss vs. SMU 2012: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

Cooper Neill

The Mustangs have struggled in 2012 but will be facing a team in a much worse situation on Saturday, as the winless Southern Miss Golden Eagles visit Gerald Ford Stadium.

The SMU Mustangs will attempt to right the ship once more, welcoming the Southern Miss Golden Eagles on Saturday in a Conference USA matchup at Gerald Ford Stadium.

The Mustangs appeared to be heading in the right direction after a tough start to the season, winning consecutive games against Houston and Memphis before heading to Florida to take on UCF. The Knights would prove to be too tough a test, however, as SMU fell, 42-17. Any hopes of winning the West Division faded with the loss.

Quarterback Garrett Gilbert found his stride in October for SMU but stumbled against UCF, completing just 55.2 percent of his passes for 133 yards. Gilbert had eight touchdowns and just four interceptions in his previous four games.

The Mustangs will have ample opportunity to get back on track against Southern Miss, which is winless in 2012. The Golden Eagles sport one of the worst offenses in the nation, scoring just 19.2 points and barely averaging 300 yards of offense per game. Southern Miss has employed five quarterbacks total this season, with only three passing touchdowns in nine games between them.

SMU will take on the Golden Eagles at 6 p.m. CT with coverage on Fox Sports Network.
