Two former conference rivals, the Tulane Green Wave and Southern Miss Golden Eagles, both hope to end their seasons on a high note when they clash in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl. It takes place Saturday morning at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Ft. Worth, Texas.
Southern Miss comes in on a bit of a downer, losing 34-17 at Florida Atlantic in its regular-season finale. The Golden Eagles actually held FAU to only 12 first downs and 156 passing yards. However, as has been an issue all season long for them, quarterback Jack Abraham committed five turnovers, with some of those leading to Florida Atlantic scores.
Abraham has throwing talent, but struggles to protect the ball. He’s thrown 25 interceptions and lost seven fumbles in two seasons. Over his last five starts, his touchdown to interception ratio is 5-7. This means Abraham is almost guaranteed to give the football to Tulane at some point.
Tulane has the 11th-best rushing attack in the country, gaining almost 250 yards per game. It will be tested by Southern Miss’ 14th ranked rush defense, which has only allowed 112 yards per game on the ground this season, and not more 151 in any of its last eight games. However, if the Green Wave defense can create takeaways, it will put USM’s defense in a serious bind. Tulane, though, has lost five of their last six. A big X-factor will be if Tulane can shake those losses and come into the bowl with a fresh mindset.

How to use AirTV with Sling
AirTV solves one of Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge those local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “It’s practically magic.”
The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.
But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—serves to strengthen one of Sling’s biggest weaknesses compared to other live streaming services like Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and PlayStation Vue. All those services have plenty of local channels.
