      Southern Miss routs UAB 62-27 for 1st, only win in 2013; Blazers finish 2-10

      UAB head coach Garrick McGee finished 2-10 in his second season with the Blazers after losing to Southern Miss 62-27, Saturday, November 30, 2013.

      BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) Nick Mullens threw a career-high five touchdown passes and rushed for another on Saturday as Southern Miss secured its first victory of the season, 62-27 over UAB.

      The Golden Eagles (1-11, 1-7 Conference USA) trailed by eight points at the start of the third quarter. Mullens led a 28-0 rally with three touchdown passes and a 1-yard touchdown rush to put Southern Miss ahead by 20 points at the start of the fourth. He threw for 370 yards.

      A loss to the Blazers would have given Southern Miss back-to-back winless seasons, something that has only happened once in the last 30 years.

      Jonathan Perry threw two touchdown passes to Jamarcus Nelson, who finished with a game-high 117 yards receiving for UAB (2-10, 1-7). The Blazers are last in total defense in the Conference USA, allowing an average of 500.2 yards per game. Southern Miss amassed 472 yards in the matchup.
