The 2011 Hawaii Bowl will be Larry Fedora's final game as coach of the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles.
After four seasons of coaching Southern Mississippi, Fedora is leaving to take the reins at North Carolina. But for now, he's looking to finish a dream season at Southern Mississippi.
The Golden Eagles have already won a school-record 11 games, including a 49-28 upset of Houston in the Conference USA championship game. The win ruined Houston's perfect season and built on Southern Mississippi's first 10-win season since 1988. The Golden Eagles have now reached the postseason in 10 consecutive years.
Fedora would still like to change one thing at Southern Miss before he leaves: the Golden Eagles have lost two straight bowl games. They will have the chance to end that streak on Saturday against the Nevada Wolf Pack, the Western Athletic Conference runner-up. Nevada is making its seventh straight postseason appearance.

Date/Time: Saturday, December 24, 2011 at 8 p.m. ET
