HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Heading into this weekend's Boise State contest, the Southern Miss football team looks to eliminate turnovers that have plagued them through their first three games this season.
The Golden Eagles, which worked for 2 ½ hours at the Joe P. Park Practice Facility Wednesday afternoon, continued toward that goal as they finish up non-conference play for the season this weekend in Idaho.
For first-year coach Todd Monken, the Golden Eagles have done a better job of trying to eliminate the turnovers and have continued to work hard on that aspect in practice.
"We have done a great job the last two (games) of not fumbling," said Monken. "We have not put it on the ground and that is the start of it. As we get more proficient with our route running, our young receivers and our protection you will not see as many throws go errant."
Monken also said that after the bye week, that the Wednesday practice was better than the previous day's workout and that his team just has to go out there to play good football.
The Golden Eagles and Broncos are set for a 9:15 p.m., CT kick off from Bronco Stadium on Saturday. The game will be telecast on ESPN U.
