HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) -- Austin Davis scored five rushing touchdowns and threw another score to lead Southern Mississippi to an easy 70-14 victory over Alabama-Birmingham on Saturday night.
The Golden Eagles, (3-6, 2-4 Conference USA) snapped a five-game losing streak, which was their longest in 32 years. Southern Miss has never lost to UAB in nine all-time meetings.

Davis scored on runs of 10, 8, 23 and 1 yards in the first half, and also hit De'Andre Brown on a 60 yard touchdown pass.
