Southern Miss head coach Larry Fedora is headed to UNC, but he's not done showing up teams at Southern Miss just yet.

The Hawaii Bowl gives him a chance to best his performance against Case Keenum's previously undefeated Houston team and leave a lasting memory with Southern Miss.

Fedora is onto bigger and better things, but don't think for a second that he's already checked out. Fedora undoubtedly wants to finish what he started.

After putting his team on the map against Houston, people are eager to see what he's conjuring in his last performance at the Southern Miss helm.

Nevada is doomed to put forth an embarrassing effort. This isn't the same Nevada team that dominated with Colin Kaepernick under center.

Nevada has shown that they are capable of slamming the door shut on pathetic teams, but with losses to Utah State, Louisiana Tech, Boise State, Oregon, Boise State and Texas Tech, it's clear that any team that has a pulse can roll Nevada.

Southern Miss' embarrassment of Houston has the nation craving for more. Puzzling losses to Marshall and UAB are a distant memory.

This is a team that has scored a combined 93 points in their last two games and they are coming into this bowl red hot.

Nevada is certainly bowl worthy, but there is no way they're going to play spoiler to Fedora's Hawaiian-themed going away party.
