Southern Miss, BYU to play 2-game series



HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — Southern Miss and BYU have agreed to play a home-and-home football series beginning in 2014.

BYU, which recently became an independent football program after leaving the Mountain West Conference, will host the Golden Eagles in 2014 in Provo, Utah. BYU will make the return trip to Southern Miss in 2015.

The teams have played twice before, splitting two games in 1975 and 1976.
