Line: Southern Miss -8.5

These two Conference USA teams look to keep their in conference records perfect. East Carolina is 2-2 on the season overall but is 2-0 in conference. Southern Miss is 4-1 on the season with a 1-0 record in conference. East Carolina brings in a two game losing streak. Both games came on the road. The Pirates are 0-2 on the road this year. Southern Miss is 3-0 at home this year and look to better that record vs an in conference opponent.

The Pirates have not figured out how to stop anyone this year. Their defense is ranked 115th in the nation allowing 41.8 points a game. As a result, the Pirate offense has been forced to put up some points. Their offense ranks 26th overall with 36 points a game. Leading this offense has been the Pirate passing game which has averaged 295.3 yards a game, 14th overall. Junior QB Dominique Davis has been great with 1,134 yards 10 TDs and 6 Ints. He also has added 81 yards on the ground with 3 TDs.

Southern Miss has a much better defense than that of the Pirates. The Southern Miss defense comes in ranked at 34th in the nation allowing 18.4 points per game. Their offense will look to get on track vs a very weak defense this week. The Eagles have averaged 26.4 points a game, 71st in the nation. The running game has done their fare share as they are averaging 183.8 yards a game which is 39th overall. A major reason this rush game has been so effective has been the play of Junior QB Austin Davis. Davis is second on the team in rushing with 182 yards and 4 TDs. Davis has been impressive throwing the ball as well. Davis has 968 yards with 3 TDs and 3 Ints.

Look for Southern miss to take advantage of the weak East Carolina defense to make this one of the easier football picks. Southern Miss will continue to rely on the great play from Austin Davis. If the Pirates want to have a shot in this one, they will need to play better defense. To go along with that, they will also need another huge game from Dominique Davis who has been impressive. Southern Miss will be too much at home.
