HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Southern Miss Director of Athletics Richard Giannini announced Friday that the Golden Eagle football team will play Louisiana Tech in a four-game series beginning with the 2010 season.
The series will include two games in Ruston at Joe Aillet Stadium and a pair of contests at Carlisle-Faulkner Field at Roberts Stadium on the Southern Miss campus.
The series begins in Ruston on Sept. 25, 2010, and then continues the following year in Hattiesburg on Sept. 3. After a year hiatus, the team renews the series with a Sept. 14, 2013, game in Ruston and ends the four-year agreement Sept. 6, 2014, in Hattiesburg.
"We look forward to renewing our series with Louisiana Tech, one of our oldest rivalries in terms of games, and a quality opponent in the Western Athletic Conference," Giannini said. "We have not played them in awhile (1992) and it is only a three-hour drive to Ruston, thus it's an away game in easy distance for our fans to travel."
The two teams have played 42 games in the series with the Golden Eagles holding a 29-13 advantage. Southern Miss won the last meeting in 1992, 16-13, at The Rock.
