The Louisville wide receiving group is still slightly under-appreciated on the nation level, in my opinion. However, after seeing Teddy Bridgewater spread the ball around to multiple guys in the Sugar Bowl, a lot of folks have taken notice.
If you don’t follow Louisville closely, you may not realize how strong of a backfield the Cards have this year. The addition of Michael Dyer made some national noise, but there hasn’t been much offseason hype about the return of Dominique Brown and Senorise Perry.
One person that certainly isn’t taking the trio of running backs lightly is Ohio head coach Frank Solich.
“As well as they throw the ball you can’t let the running game get going,” Solich said during a press conference earlier this week. “You need to try to stop the running game. If they do get both going, then you are in big trouble.”
Stopping Louisville’s running game will be a lot easier said than done, considering this may be the deepest backfield the Cardinals have ever had.
