Southern Miss releases 2015 football schedule

The Southern Miss football team has its full slate for the 2015 season, and it includes games against two of Conference USA's newer members.

Southern Miss will play Charlotte, which joins C-USA as a football member this upcoming season, on Oct. 24.

The Golden Eagles will play Old Dominion, which became a conference member in 2014, on Nov. 21.

With UAB deciding after the 2014 season to close its football program, USM will play Louisiana Tech instead of the Blazers in the season finale in Ruston, La.

The Golden Eagles' bye will take place the week of Nov. 7.

Southern Miss was 3-9 last year and is 4-20 in Todd Monken's two years as head coach. The Golden Eagles are banking on a turnaround in 2015 with the addition of a large number of transfers, junior college and FBS.

The USM season opens on Sept. 5 with a home game against Mississippi State.
