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 have been against teams which enter this weekend under .500. After Friday's game, the Cardinals (7-0, 2-0 Big East) don't face another opponent that currently owns a winning record until closing the regular season Nov. 29 at Rutgers - 7-0 and ranked 18th.
The Cardinals are one of 11 FBS programs yet to lose after Cincinnati (5-1, 1-0) came off that list with a 29-23 defeat at Toledo on Saturday.
That dropped the Bearcats from the AP Top 25, but they've won five straight and nine of 10 against ranked conference foes, including five in a row on the road. Plus, Cincinnati has won the last four m...
BEST OF MAXIM
I’m not sure if it was intentional or not, but Cincinnati starting quarterback Munchie Legaux has certainly given Louisville some bulletin board material for Friday night’s match-up.
When asked by the media this afternoon if he saw any similarities between himself and Teddy Bridgewater, Legaux simply responded “I’m better.”
I’m sure every quarterback has to maintain a...
The fans who have stuck around to see the last two finishes at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium definitely got their money’s worth. I would have liked to be a little less stressed out towards the end, but you couldn’t ask for a much more entertaining finish.
Louisville didn’t play a flawless game to say the least, but once again they’ve proven that they know how to win close...
If a receiver is open, Teddy Bridgewater is going to find him. If not, he’s going to pull it in and run for daylight. Puts his team on his back. Whatever it takes.South Florida was shutting down the University of Louisville offense, allowing the Cardinals only 384 total yards for the game. Heralded running backs Senorise Perry and Jeremy Wright could manage only 60 yards between...

Steve Greenberg, a college football writer for the Sporting News was in Louisville yesterday afternoon and spoke with Charlie Strong and some of his players. As expected, the rumor of Arkansas being interested in Charlie Strong as their next head coach was mentioned. Cardinal quarterback Teddy Bridgewater doesn’t seem to be too concerned about Strong leaving anytime soon.
Louisville's perfect start appeared to be over before Teddy Bridgewater came up with one more big play.
Bridgewater threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Eli Rogers with 1:35 left, and the 16th-ranked Cardinals edged South Florida 27-25 on Saturday for their best beginning to season since 2006.

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...
