Southern Miss top UL Lafayette 28-21 in New Orleans Bowl

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Southern Mississippi career passing leader Nick Mullens finally has the bowl triumph that eluded him until his final college game - thanks in no small part to a record performance by one of his veteran receivers.

Allenzae Staggers set New Orleans Bowl records with 11 catches for 230 yards and also scored a touchdown to help Southern Miss beat Louisiana-Lafayette 28-21 on Saturday night.

"To end it like this, I couldn't ask for anything better," said Mullens, who lost his only other bowl appearance last season. "Last year, I was crying because we lost ... and now I'm trying not to cry because we won."
