Cards crack top ten in AP Poll

The Louisville football team achieved the highest preseason ranking in program history by landing at No. 10 in the Associated Press' first Top 25 poll of 2007.

The Cardinals were ranked 11th in the Coaches Poll, which was released earlier this summer.

As they are in just about every preseason poll known to man, USC is ranked as the top team in the country by the AP, followed by LSU, Big East favorite West Virginia, and perennial national powers Texas and Michigan. Defending national champion Florida is sixth, and Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Virginia Tech and U of L round out the top ten.

The only other Big East team to make the Top 25 was Rutgers, which made its first appearance in an AP preseason Top 25 by landing at No. 16.

  1. USC (62)
  2. LSU (2)
  3. West Virginia (1)
  4. Texas
  5. Michigan
  6. Florida
