After a week off, the Louisville Cardinals are back in action on Saturday when they host the Boston College Eagles at 4 p.m. inside Cardinal Stadium. The ACC Network will have television coverage of the contest, which will serve as U of L’s Homecoming game for 2021.
The Cardinals are coming off of back-to-back gut-punch losses. Three weeks ago, Louisville fell at Wake Forest, 37-34, on a Demon Deacon field goal in the closing seconds. A week later, U of L couldn’t hang on to a 17-point fourth quarter lead and missed a field goal at the final horn to walk away with a 34-33 defeat.
After a 4-0 start, Boston College has also dropped consecutive games. The Eagles were bested by Clemson, 19-13, before taking a more humbling 33-7 beatdown a week later at NC State.
Despite the line opening at Louisville -9, according to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Cards are just a 5.5-point favorite to beat Boston College and start the second half of their season on the right foot.
