Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl, Louisville Vs. Southern Miss: Tie Game At Halftime

The Golden Eagles won't hold their two-touchdown lead for long in the first half of the 2010 Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl. Bilal Powell, playing through pain after sustaining what's being characterized as a "nerve injury" early in the game, runs for 24 yards on the first down of Louisville's answering possession, and the Cardinals record gains of 15 and 12 yards on the two plays immediately following. Four minutes later, Justin Burke hits Ent-like tight end Josh Chichester in the numbers (so, right around everybody else's facemask) for a 9-yard touchdown. Louisville narrows the scoreboard gap to one touchdown with five minutes remaining in the half.

Ninety second later, a lucky break lands the Cardinals back behind the ball again. Antwon Canady recovers a Golden Eagles fumble at the USM 27, and Bilal Powell runs one in six yards. That'll about do it for action in the first half, and as the players from Louisville and Southern Miss hit the locker rooms, we've got a tie game in St. Petersburg, 21-21.
