CBS Sport's Chris Huston has the Cards #10:

10. Louisville -- Almost everyone is back from a team that went 11-2, including a romp over Florida in the Sugar Bowl. The headliner is junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who should be on the short list for the Heisman in the fall. If the defense can take a step up, this could be a dark-horse title contender.

Meanwhile, ESPN's Mark Schlabach has them at #8:

8. Louisville Cardinals:
Did any team (besides Alabama?) have a better ending to its season than Louisville? The Cardinals blasted Florida 33-23 in the Allstate Sugar Bowl to finish 11-2, a few weeks after locking up coach Charlie Strong to a long-term contract. They're also leaving the Big East for the ACC in 2014. Now here's the really good news: Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who threw for 3,718 yards with 27 touchdowns and 8 interceptions, was only a sophomore. The Cardinals will bring back six other starters on offense, but they'll have to replace center Mario Benavides (a Rimington Trophy finalist) and left tackle Alex Kupper. Strong figures to have 10 starters back from a rapidly improving defense; cornerback Adrian Bushell is the only starter expected to leave. If Louisville can dominate the Big East in its last season in the league, it figures to be a major player in the BCS title race. Its nonconference schedule will be very soft next season, with games against Ohio, FCS foe Eastern Kentucky, Kentucky and Florida International.
