Tigers Singleton Ready for Southern Miss

The Memphis Tigers Football team can get to .500 in Conference USA with a win at Southern Miss on Saturday..

Oddsmakers think that's an improbable proposition..

The Golden Eagles are favored by 13.5

That line doesn't mean anything to U of M Wide Receiver Carlos Singleton.

The rangy 6'9" Wide Receiver from Brownsville, Haywood County has had NO problems finding the End Zone against Southern..

He had Two touchdowns in last seasons' win at the Liberty Bowl 36-30..

He scored the Winning TD late in the game 2-years ago AT Hattiesburg 29-

to-26.

Singleton says he ready for Saturday's Black and Blue Bowl at the Rock.

 Now a Senior, Singleton says he wants to do something special for his final trip to the Rock.

Singleton got a big boost to his pass reception totals with Will Hudgens back under center for Memphis last week against UTEP..

Hudgens is no stranger on trips to the Rock himself.

No.... Will Hudgens HASN'T been around forever with the Memphis Tigers Football team..

It just SEEMS like it..

Hudgens, a former Ridgeway High star, is now in his 6TH year at the U of M..

An NCAA exemption granted for last years' season ending injury, coupled with a redshirt year granted for an injury before he even got on campus makes Hudgens the Gray Beard of the program.

It's that longevity, though, that's given Him a calming experience to manage the team.

He'll start at Quarterback for the Tigers at Southern Miss Saturday night.

Kickoff for the Tigers at Southern Miss is 6pm Saturday.

It'll be Televised on ESPN-2.
