Southern Miss Slips at Home Against Louisville

Senorise Perry rushed for 118 yards and two touchdowns, Jeremy Wright added 84 rushing yards and No. 19 Louisville rallied to beat Southern Miss 21-17 in a downpour on Saturday night.

Louisville (5-0) trailed 17-6 midway through the second quarter, but scored 15 unanswered points for the win, even though star quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was rendered nearly useless because of a driving storm that soaked the Roberts Stadium turf.

Perry scored both touchdowns during the rally. His 1-yard score pulled Louisville within 17-12 just before halftime and his 14-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter proved to be the game winner.

Louisville is off to its best start since 2006. Southern Miss (0-4) is in the midst of its worst start since 1976.

Southern Miss had a chance to win on the final drive, but a halfback pass by Desmond Johnson fell incomplete on fourth down.
