Harrison's TD completes rally for Southern Miss

Associated Press

HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- Tory Harrison's 57-yard touchdown run capped a Southern Mississippi rally as the Golden Eagles defeated Virginia 37-34.

Southern Miss (3-0) trailed until the fourth quarter, with fumbles and penalties allowing the Cavaliers to surge to a 13-0 lead after one quarter.

Virginia (0-3) scored on a 69-yard pass from Jameel Sewell to Tim Smith and had two field goals, thanks to Southern Miss fumbles.

A roughing the passer call on Southern Miss set up 4-yard TD run by Sewell to give the Cavaliers a 27-10 lead at halftime.

The victory is Southern Miss' eighth straight.

Southern Miss is 4-2 in home games against BCS conference opponents since 2001. The last big conference school in town was North Carolina State, which fell 37-17 in 2006.
