Southern Miss vs. Alabama Football Series History

Alabama leads 37-5-2


This one is a mismatch of gigantic proportions. Southern Miss at one time had a pretty respectable program but those days are long gone. In three games the Golden Eagles have only defeated FCS Grambling. Well, I shouldn’t say “only” because a lot of FBS teams have lost to FCS teams this season. This one will be over at halftime and Nick Saban will show mercy in the second half.
