—The Cards turned the ball over 24 times, good for 124th out of the 127 FBS teams that played football in 2020.

—Louisville’s -12 turnover margin was the second worst in the FBS, ahead of only Duke.

vs.

SELECTION COMMITTEES

HOW THEY GOT HERE:

—Defeated Mitch Barnhart (52%-48%) in the quarterfinals

RAP SHEET:

—The NCAA men’s basketball tournament selection committee made Louisville the first team left out of March Madness despite the Cardinals being included in 94 percent of the mock brackets on the internet.

—The NCAA baseball tournament selection committee also left Louisville on the wrong side of the bubble.

—A Louisville team was not selected for participation in The Basketball Tournament despite meeting all of the event’s criteria.

In 24 hours, one of these two will have punched their ticket to the finals.
