After winning 16 of their last 17 games, Louisville baseball will enter the postseason ranked No. 1 in the RPI.
College Football News is out with its full 2016 Louisville football preview.
The Season Will Be a Success If ...
The Cardinals win 10 games for the first time as an ACC member. Louisville won nine in 2014 and eight last season in what was billed as a borderline rebuilding campaign.
Now that Bobby Petrino enters Year 3 of his Louisville sequel, QB Lamar Jackson is a year older and the defense is again salty, this team is ready to be the next best thing to Clemson and Florida State in the entire conference. Plus, the schedule isn't overwhelming, with a visit from the Noles and trips to play the Tigers and Houston as the only bouts with teams that'll be ranked in the preseason.
Sept. 17 vs. Florida State. If the Cards are going to turn the Atlantic Division into a three-team title chase, they've got to beat a ranked opponent. Louisville has dropped seven straight to Top 25 teams, including 0-3 in each of the last two seasons.
This Week 3 visit from the Seminoles will give an early indication of the Cardinals' ceiling in 2016. Knock off Florida State in front of an electric Papa John's crowd, and it'll provide a clear signal that Louisville could be in the ACC title hunt right through the end of November.

Chinanu Onuaku is one of the 13 underclassmen with the biggest should I stay or should I go decision to make in the next two days.
Chinanu Onuaku, Louisville: The standard belief is that Onuaku would head to the NBA this season. He's got a chance to be a first round pick this year, but the process is drawing out. There's still a shot, but if I'm a Louisville fan, I wouldn't expect to see him in the Yum! Center anytime soon.
