Eagles continue prep for Louisville

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - A warm Wednesday afternoon was the backdrop for the Southern Miss football practice at the Joe P. Park Practice Facility as the Golden Eagles continue working towards meeting nationally ranked Louisville this Saturday at 7 p.m., at Carlisle-Faulkner Field at Roberts Stadium.

Redshirt freshman Ricky Lloyd continued to take a majority of reps in practice at the quarterback spot, while sophomore Cole Weeks has been taking backup snaps.

Junior Chris Campbell did not practice Wednesday due to a personal matter not related to his injury, while freshman Anthony Alford was limited in his drills. Junior Arsenio Favor, who missed most of spring practice with a new injury worked through normal drills for the first time.

"(Campbell) is still day-to-day and he definitely won't be in this week, but it will probably be week-to-week and we are getting good news on all the tests," Johnson said. "Anthony (Alford) was doing some things just to test his brace to see how his knee felt in that. He didn't do any quarterback reps but he just worked out a little bit."

After practice, Johnson compared Louisville to last week's opponent, Western Kentucky, which runs a lot of the same formations with some of the same sets, shifts and movements and praised the Cardinal quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, who has thrown for 1,049 yards and seven touchdowns this season.

"They are very good and talented (on offense) and their quarterback is a very good football player as he is very comfortable in what they are doing. He has completed about 75 percent of his passes and it is a very well-executed offense."

Tickets for the game, which is the Golden Eagles' annual BLACKOUT contest, are available online at SouthernMissTickets.com, by phone at 1-800-844-TICK (8425) or in person at the Pat Ferlise Athletic Ticket Center, weekdays, from 8 a.m., until 5 p.m.
