Southern Miss (3-6-1, 0-3 C-USA) fell to conference foe Rice, 1-0, last week and had their Sunday game against Houston rained out. They will look to rebound against two of C-USA's top teams.
The Mustangs (5-5-2, 1-1-2 C-USA) are led by Shelby Redman who has six goals and five assists on the year. Her 17 total points have her tied for third among all C-USA players. Teammate Courtney Smith has tallied eight assists of her own this season to lead the conference in that category.
Sunday's opponent, Tulsa (6-4-2, 1-2-1 C-USA) began the season 4-1 but added just two victories through September and will be coming off a trip to Central Florida when they arrive in Hattiesburg. Claire Nicholson's five goals and 12 points are team highs while the Golden Hurricane have split time in goal between Katie Bykowski and Hayley Harryman. Both keepers have six starts through 12 games for Tulsa.
Southern Miss has dropped a pair of close 1-0 decisions since entering conference play but sport a winning record at home this season and will look for their difference makers to keep that intact.
Friday's game is scheduled for a 4 p.m. kickoff while Sunday's match will begin at 1 p.m. Admission to all Southern Miss soccer matches is free.
