South Florida has never been an easy game for University of Louisville football, especially at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa where the Cardinals have lost three out of four games over the years. Guess which team seems to be finally be getting its act together as Saturday’s game approaches? South Florida, under first year coach Willie Taggert, has now won two straight games, including wins over Cincinnati and UConn, after four initial losses. The Bulls are, in fact, undefeated in conference play with those two wins and tied for first place. Something to play for now, especially with Louisville coming to town. Confidence and momentum can be a lethal combination in college football and right now the Bulls have both, along with an emotional coach with something to prove. Their field goal kicker, Marvin Kloss, has made good on eight of nine attempts. UofL, meanwhile, is coming off its first loss of the season, a game in which the defense suddenly looked suspect, exposing its vulnerabilities. Having eliminated itself from the national championship discuss and becoming a long shot for a BCS game. Not quite the same motivation it had a week ago. The odds makers at sports betting sites for college football have made Louisville an early 19-point favorite. That will have South Florida amped and ready to challenge UofL this week.
