Indeed, we are here. The rain is not, at least not yet. The serious stuff appears as though it's working to hold off until 9 p.m. or later.
No lineups yet. Will tweet those when they are available. In the meantime, stay tuned here all night for updates and whatnot.

Just started absolutely pouring here in Evansville, not sure if its what you guys will get but if it is it won't be fun.
Also ND usually has a good team don't they? Sorry I'm not at a computer to check out their team
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
This one is No. 8 (Notre Dame) vs. No. 11 (Indiana), so yes, they are very good. And I believe what is your way will be our way eventually. Stay dry Oaken!
Anthem done, starters announced. Kickoff imminent.
Indiana moving east to west in the first half, so Soffner will have to battle the sun in goal. Absolutely no wind here at the moment.
Teams trading possession in the first five minutes. Notre Dame with some good early running, but neither side has troubled the other's goalie thus far.
And then as I say that, Notre Dame breaks off a long free kick, shot saved around the post by Luis Soffner. Corner Notre Dame .... Zavaleta heads it out.
Long throw by Kotlov threatens Notre Dame 18. Ball not cleared, Corrado curls in a nice cross, but it's dealt with.
Corner Notre Dame ...
SAVE Luis Soffner. Hard header into the ground by Lachowecki, Soffner does so well to meet it at the ground and hold. Notre Dame so close.
Forgive me, header was from Nick Besler.
Notre Dame certainly having the better of possession at the moment. Irish building momentum ...
Zavaleta freekick deflected out for a corner. It was bending well.
Corrado's corner cleared, then Petts' shot is deflected out. Corrado another corner ...
Punched well by Irish keeper Patrick Wall. Notre Dame tries to break with numbers, but the ball is cleared.
First subs of the game coming up for ND.
Subs it is. Brown off, Harrison Shipp on. Priede off, Finley on.
Indiana misplacing too many passes right now. Uncustomary of them. 21:40 left in the first half, still zeroes.
Femi Hollinger-Janzen on for Andrew Oliver.
McKain needs to be careful. He's committed a couple of tough fouls in the last 5-7 minutes. Card could follow soon.
Free kick off the second foul fools Soffner, but Notre Dame has no one back post to meet it.
Excellent flowing move from the Irish, who release a player down the right side of the 18. Cross cleared for a corner, which comes to nothing.
Second IU sub -- Dylan Lax in for Corrado. Indiana winning possession back for longer stretches now.
First card of the night, as Danny O'Leary comes in late on Matt McKain, as the latter slides to clear the ball. Not the first challenge that could have warranted a card. Perhaps a message to everyone to stop diving in so much.
Sparks into the lineup for Kotlov. 13:17 left, no score.
Femi wins a corner ...
Nifty footwork from Bushue to create space down the left. Don't see that from a defensive mid every day. Cross goes in to Sparks who chips it over the net.
Another Indiana corner, this one from Petts. Notre Dame clears again. Still no shots on goal for IU tonight.
Zavaleta comes close, though. Rolls a right-footed shot wide. Walls looked a bit slow to react, but the shot was a good two feet wide.
Corner Notre Dame, as Indiana fails to close down the right flank well.
