Southern Miss. In A Miserable Slump

AP) MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Curtis Steele ran for 178 yards and two touchdowns to help Memphis beat Southern Mississippi 36-30 on Saturday night.
Even though the Tigers (4-5, 2-3 Conference USA) used a variety trick plays with a third-string quarterback Brett Toney heading the offense, racking up 285 yards rushing — 516 totaled yards on offense.
Starter Arkelon Hall and backup Will Hudgens were injured last week against East Carolina. Fourth-stringer Tyler Bass, who shared time with Toney, was injured in the third period on Saturday night, leaving Toney as the lone quarterback.
