HATTIESBURG, Miss. - As the skies darkened early thanks to the time change, the Southern Miss Golden Eagles headed to the showers following their two-plus hour practice session inside the Joe P. Park Practice Facility on Tuesday.

Southern Miss takes on C-USA West Division foe SMU on Saturday from Gerald J. Ford Stadium in Dallas, a series which the Golden Eagles lead 3-0.

The Golden Eagles changed their practice schedule up slightly, making them "shorter, faster and more intense," according to coach Ellis Johnson.

"I'd still like to see the passing game become crisper," Johnson added. "We've got to polish up the things we're doing, find out what we've done the best and cut it down some."

Saturday's game is set for a 6 p.m. kickoff and will be broadcast on FSN with Joel Meyers, Dave Lapham and Desmond Purnell calling the action. It can also be heard on the IMG Sports Network with John Cox and Vic Purvis.

Tickets for the 2012 Southern Miss football season can be purchased either online via, by calling 1-800-844-TICK (8425) or visiting the Pat Ferlise Ticket Center from 8 a.m., until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
