Southern Miss Golden Eagles 2016 Schedule Breakdown

We continue on our Conference USA schedule tour for 2016 with Southern Miss:

9/3 at Kentucky
9/10 Savannah State
9/17 Troy
9/24 at UTEP
10/1 Rice
10/8 at UTSA
10/15 at LSU
10/29 Marshall
11/5 Charlotte
11/12 at Old Dominion
11/19 at North Texas
11/26 Louisiana Tech

Notes: Southern Miss has a solid shot to win all four dates in September, including a road opener at Kentucky. That game does not look too out of reach, and I am calling it an early win over an SEC program.
October looks like another solid month, but I see a loss on the road at LSU. I'm not a huge believer in LSU for 2016, but it will be very difficult to win in Baton Rouge. That being said, I see USM closing out October with a 7-1 record.
The Eagles get two of four on the road in November, however, the two road games are seriously winnable against Old Dominion and North Texas. The finale should be a solid game, and I give the Eagles the edge at home over Louisiana Tech. Charlotte should be an easy win to start the month.
Overall Projected Record: 11-1
