Southern Mississippi scored 4 non-offensive touchdowns Saturday in the first half of their 48-28 win over East Carolina.

In the first quarter alone, the Golden Eagles returned an interception 97 yards for a touchdown, had a punt return 60 yards for a touchdown and blocked a punt for another touchdown. The fourth offensive touchdown came in the second quarter on a 79 yard interception returned for a touchdown.

Larry Fedora has Southern Miss ranked #25 and 8-1 overall, 4-1 in C-USA play. Their remaining games are against UCF, at UAB, and then they host Memphis (combined record of those 3 is 7-20). Southern Miss's lone loss this season was back in week 2 when they lost at Marshall 26-20. 

Despite being up 38-14 at halftime, take a listen to how fired up Fedora was speaking with his squad during the break.
