The Cardinal Connect:
Louisville’s defense had a very tough time stopping the run against South Florida on Saturday afternoon giving up nearly 200 yards to a USF team that hadn’t been running the ball well all season. The Cardinal’s rushing defense will have to make a big improvement tomorrow night as Cincinnati comes to town. The Bearcats lead the Big East in rushing and rank 16th in the country with 225 yards per game. Their 5.89 yards per carry is the sixth highest average in the country.
The Bearcats have three of the league’s top 15 rushers. Senior running back George Winn leads the way with an average of 101 yards per game. Dual-threat quarterback Munchie Legaux spends a lot of time in the pocket, but has proven he can make plays with his legs as well, averaging 44 rushing yards per game. Sophomore running back Ralph David Abernathy leads the Big East in yards per carry at 6.62. He doesn’t get a lot of carries, but when he does, Abernathy certainly makes the most of it.

BEST OF MAXIM
Cincinnati blew a second-half lead for the second straight week, and this one really hurt.
Munchie Legaux threw a costly interception in overtime, leading to John Wallace's winning 30-yard field goal in No. 16 Louisville's 34-31 victory over the Bearcats on Friday night.
Cincinnati (5-2, 1-1 Big East) led 24-14 with 10:26 remaining in the third quarter, but needed a late...
Cincinnati at No. 16 Louisville
Friday, 8:00 p.m. ESPN
Line: Louisville -3.5
Had things turned out a bit differently, Friday night’s matchup been Cincinnati and Louisville could’ve been for all the Tostitos. Or oranges. Or whatever the hell the Big East champion is playing for these days. Either way, Cincinnati-Louisville had potential to be a big one. You know, until...
The big comment floating around the twitter world today comes from the Cincinnati quarterback Munchie Legaux. Per the great Bearcat Report
Obviously Munchie Legaux should think he's the best quarterback in the world. Confidence is needed when you play such a demanding position. Confidence is needed in all walks of life. What doesn't need to happen is shooting your...
Louisville has shown it can start fast and win with late-game heroics.
The No. 16 Cardinals (7-0, 2-0 Big East Conference) now want to eliminate all those mid-game letdowns in between.
That has been difficult for Louisville, which has found ways to remain undefeated. But there's no room for error Friday night against Cincinnati (5-1, 1-0), which enters with the league's...
While Louisville looks to keep alive the dream of an undefeated season, Cincinnati can only try to ruin that hope after blowing its own chance at one.
The toughest test yet for the 16th-ranked Cardinals, and maybe their biggest until the season finale, appears to come Friday night when they host a Bearcats team coming off its first loss.
All but one of Louisville's victories...
At times it felt like we were witnessing a Big 12 game out there as Louisville (8-0, 3-0) pulled out a crazy 34-31 overtime victory over rival Cincinnati (5-2, 1-1) and took home The Keg of Nails for the first time in five seasons. Even sweeter for Louisville is the fact that they improved to 8-0 and kept their chances at being in a BCS bowl alive and well.
Before the game Munchie...
