Southern Miss to meet Florida State in Independence Bowl

The Florida State football team will play Southern Miss in the Walk-On's Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana, on December 27, it was announced Sunday.

One of the more memorable games in the series for USM fans took place in 1989 when quarterback Brett Favre led the Golden Eagles to a 30-26 win over Florida State in Jacksonville, Florida.

The Seminoles, who improved to 6-6 on the season, are now 1-0 under interim head coach Odell Haggins.

Southern Miss returns to Shreveport for its third Independence Bowl appearance. "We are happy to extend our bowl streak that means so much to everyone associated with the program".

Southern Miss is 8-4 on the season and has won its last three games.


Florida State didn't exactly get a glamorous destination for its NCAA-record 36th consecutive bowl game.

Florida State leads the all-time series against Southern Miss with a record of 13-8-1.

The Walk-On's Independence Bowl will be held at Independence Stadium.

Now, the Noles know they will play a 13 game this season as the look to have a repeat of last season - winning the final games of the regular season before getting a big bowl win.
