HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- Two games does not a season make, but Florida Atlantic has been as good as it can be with interim head football coach Brian Wright at the helm as he led Florida Atlantic to a 41-7 win Saturday over Southern Miss at Roberts Stadium.
For Southern Miss, the misery continued as the Golden Eagles forged another link for the nation's longest losing streak in the Football Bowl Subdivision at 22 games.
FAU (4-6, 3-4) notched back-to-back victories for the first time since the 2010 season, and improved to 2-0 since Wright replaced Carl Pelini, who was dismissed over alleged illegal drug use.
Johnson, the Owls' dual-threat quarterback, rushed for 111 yards and two touchdowns, while Warren tacked on 105 yards on 18 carries. Damian Fortner added 94 yards and two touchdowns on just 10 carries.
FAU attempted just 12 passes while averaging 5.6 yards per carry. The Owls turned three Southern Miss turnovers into 13, first-half points, including a 61-yard interception return for a score by safety Christian Milstead giving FAU a 27-0 halftime lead.
Short scoring runs by Johnson and Fortner left FAU ahead 41-0 in the third quarter before Southern Miss averted its first shutout since 2003 on a 4-yard run by quarterback Nick Mullens with 10:57 to play.
Southern Miss was held to a season-low 189 total yards offense, its first game with less than 200 yards in a game.
Where there were once potential fires, such as Scott calling out UCLA AD Dan Guerrero, things are now cool in the Pac-12. Or at least cooler.
