HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) -- Louisville coach Charlie Strong has watched Southern Mississippi struggle from afar this season.

He's surprised the traditionally strong program hasn't won a game this fall. And that might be what scares him the most.

No. 19 Louisville (4-0) travels to face Southern Miss (0-3) on Saturday night at Roberts Stadium in a matchup of former Conference USA rivals. The Golden Eagles still have the all-time series lead, but the Cardinals have won the past five games in the series dating back to 1999.

Strong has Louisville rolling again in his third season. Led by sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, the Cardinals have an explosive offense that's scored at least 28 points in all four games.

Southern Miss is 0-3 for the first time since 1976.
