Tulane is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games while the under is 5-0-1 in their last 6 games against C-USA. Southern Miss is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 bowl games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall. Southern Miss is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.

These two teams have a history from their times in C-USA, and a lot of those saw the Golden Eagles win quite handily. However, times have changed and these two teams are even and this has the potential to be a very good game on Saturday. With that said, I expect a tight, hard-fought and physical game from both sides and I see this being a game that comes down to the final couple of possessions, so I’ll take a shot with Southern Miss and the points here.
