I’ve put it off for long enough. As much as I’d like to pretend it didn’t happen, I guess it’s only right to talk about it. Louisville’s quest for an undefeated season hit a road block yesterday afternoon, losing to Syracuse 45-27. Louisville’s defense gave up a total of 524 yards to the Orange. Teddy Bridgewater continued to perform at a very high level, throwing for 424 yards and three touchdowns, but unfortunately that wasn’t enough. Cuse used a 21-point second quarter to build a 31-13 halftime lead. The game wasn’t close after that. For the fans it’s tough to have to sit with this during a bye week, but I think it works out well for Coach Strong and his team. Keep in mind, Louisville can still win the Big East and earn a BCS bowl bid. Yesterday’s loss was tough, but the overall goal is still possible.
