USF sideliners

Cannonized

The cannons were ringing loudly and often Saturday. Every time the Golden Eagles scored, the Southern Miss ROTC unit would fire cannons in celebration. The total: 10 blasts.

Adding to the legends

While Southern Miss has slowly emerged to take its place among the nation's top teams (and rankings), the school isn't without famous alums, most notably Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre. He is the school's all-time leading passer with 7,695 yards (in 613 completions) and has the most touchdown passes with 52. Favre also holds the school record in total offense with 7,606. At halftime, the Southern Miss athletic department added three members to its new Southern Miss Legends Club, including Reggie Collier. Favre is also a member, along with legendary Oakland Raiders punter Ray Guy.

This isn't South Carolina

The Rebel flag controversy that consumed South Carolina before its removal from the state capital this year apparently hasn't spilled over into Hattiesburg. The flag was prominently displayed, waving over the stadium, and was on the field during the national anthem.

Symbolism

With 14:16 left, a black cat ran onto the field, sprinted across it and through one end zone. By that time, the Bulls already knew they were having bad luck.

Quotable

"I think we're better than what the score indicates." -- Center Joey Sipp.
