According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Washington is favored in this game, as the Huskies are getting odds of -8.5 points against the Golden Eagles. The over/under total for the game has been set at 55 points. These two meet today at 2:20PM ET on ESPN. The game is being held at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, TX.

Southern Miss (9-4, 10-3 ATS) puts up 40.6 points and 519.8 yards per game on offense, which means Washington (6-6, 7-5 ATS) will either need a dominant defense today, or a big day from running back Myles Gaskin. The Huskies have a pretty good defense, which holds opponents to just 17.8 points and 349.9 yards per game, but stopping Southern Miss won’t be a likely scenario.

The Huskies will turn to Gaskin, a 5-9 freshman that has run for 1,121 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2015. Oddsmakers expect another big day for Gaskin, as he has been given an over/under of 130.5 rushing yards in this game. Gaskin has eclipsed that total in four games this year. Southern miss has the 33rd-ranked run defense, giving up 140.8 yards per game. Regardless of how the Washington defense does today, Gaskin should get plenty of chances to have a big game and break off some lengthy runs.
