As we know, Kentucky football has been preparing for its 2016 season in a new training facility, complete with a new locker room.
Turns out, UK’s first opponent is also in new digs. Southern Miss recently opened a new locker room to rave reviews from the Golden Eagles.
Remember, Southern Miss is coming off a 9-5 season in which it reached the C-USA championship game where it lost to Western Kentucky. The Golden Eagles lost its bowl game to Washington and its head coach in Todd Monken.
Never miss a local story.
Jay Hopson is the new Southern Miss head coach. And the Eagles return highly-regarded quarterback Nick Mullens. And as we know, USM has a new offensive coordinator in Shannon Dawson, who just happened to be UK’s offensive coordinator a year ago.
