HATTIESBURG, MS (AP) -

Nick Mullens threw for 591 yards and four touchdowns and Southern Mississippi set a school record with 702 yards of total offense in a 44-28 win over Rice on Saturday night.
    
On Nov. 15 last year against Rice, Southern Miss (4-1, 2-0 Conference USA) set the previous school record for total offense with 682 yards.

Staggers' 93-yarder is the third-longest TD reception in school history and put the Eagles up 27-14.
    
Tyler Stehling threw a 7-yard TD pass to Samuel Stewart to give Rice (0-5, 0-3) its only lead of the game at 7-3.
