Hrapmann kicks game-winner to allow USM to beat La. Tech
Danny Hrapmann's 49-yard field goal with 2:32 to play lifted Southern Miss to a 19-17 win over Louisiana Tech before 22,356 rain-soaked fans at Roberts Stadium Saturday night.
After the Bulldogs (0-1) took a 17-13 lead midway through the fourth quarter on a one-yard plunge by Lennon Creer, Southern Miss took its next two possessions inside LA Tech territory where it converted on a pair of field goals - one by Corey Acosta and the game-winner by Hrapmann.
Tech had two final chances but turned it over on downs around midfield with just over two minutes to play and then ran out of time with the ball inside USM territory to end the game.
