LOUISVILLE (5-5, 2-3) AT SOUTH FLORIDA (7-3, 2-3)
Game Time: 8 p.m.
Location: Raymond James Stadium: Tampa, FL
Favorite: South Florida by 9.5
All-Time Series: Tied 2-2
Last Meeting: Louisville won 31-8 at home last season
Excitement Level: 3.3
I'm pretty sure at least 2.8 of that is carried over from the basketball game.
Game Attire: Red long-sleeved shirt with "Louisville Cardinals" across the chest in white, and "Cardinals" down the left sleeve in white.
Not so much because it's 2-0, but because I wore it to the basketball game and I'm feeling really comfortable right now.
Pre-Game Meal: Snacks to be determined.
Had Qdoba (free taco!!) fairly recently, so I can't see a full meal happening between now and kickoff.
Bilal Powell Playing (At RB) Alert Level: Charcoal (I have no fucking clue).
First repeat of the season.
Predicted Star of the Game: Mario Urrutia
Number seven steps up because of the challenge the USF secondary presents.
Notable and Quotable:
--Brian Brohm is 60 yards away from breaking Ken Dorsey's Big East record for career passing yards.
--Louisville is 0-2 all-time at South Florida. The Cards lost 45-14 in 2005, and 31-28 in double overtime in 2003.
--Harry Douglas' average of 125.57 yards receiving per game ranks first in the conference, and fourth in the country.
--"(George Selvie)'s numbers are insane. He just plays hard every play. It seems like he doesn't always get you with his first pass-rush move, but the second and third effort he gives is when he get his sacks." --Eric Wood
--"I think our guys are pretty astute in terms of knowing exactly where we're at, and what we've got to get done to be a bowl team." --Steve Kragthorpe
--"We didn't play very well, we lost. They weren't as good as I thought they were going to be." --Matt Grothe after last year's 31-8 loss in which he was sacked six times and completed less than half of his passes.
CC Prediction: South Florida 34, Louisville 27
Did you guys hear we set a school record for made three-pointers today?
