The weather conditions for Louisville and Southern Miss could be better.
Louisville and Southern Miss have gone to halftime with Southern Miss, and you might think the story of the game is a team that got demolished by Western Kentucky last week, leading the nation's No. 19 team 17-12.

And from AP reporter David Brandt, here's what it looks like inside the stadium:
