Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl

Louisville (6-6) vs. South­ern Miss (8-4)

8 p.m.

Trop­i­cana Field, St. Peters­burg, Fla. The pro­grams are plenty fa­mil­iar with the other. They met last sea­son (a 25-23 Louisville win), they’re for­mer Con­fer­ence USA op­po­nents and they faced each other al­most ev­ery year as in­de­pen­dents in the 1980s and ‘90s. South­ern Miss, though, has been the more con­sis­tent pro­gram and is play­ing in its ninth con­sec­u­tive bowl game. Louisville is in the post­sea­son for the first time since 2006.

Louisville’s Bi­lal Pow­ell is ranked 10th in the nation in rush­ing yards per game, and his top two back­ups com­bined to rush for 582 yards. South­ern Miss is ranked 13th na­tion­ally in rush de­fense, al­low­ing 113.3 yards per game.
