Athlon Ranks The Toughest Games On The Louisville Football Schedule


I know you all are itching intensely for some Louisville Football. I intend to scratch that itch today. Well not me per say but I bring you something to scratch that itch. Does that make me a back scratcher? WHERE AM I GOING WITH THIS??? Sorry, Let’s get back on track. Today Athlon Sports released a list of Louisville’s toughest games and ranks them in such order. Who is the toughest on the schedule? What does Athlons think about UofL Football? Here is an excerpt from the story.

For the last five seasons, the ACC champion has either been the Clemson Tigers or the Florida State Seminoles. If there’s one team that could change that, it is the Louisville Cardinals. After beginning the 2015 season just 2-4, head coach Bobby Petrino‘s Cardinals won six out of their last seven games to finish 8-5. With 16 returning starters, Louisville is a dark horse pick to win the ACC championship this fall. The road through the ACC won’t be an easy one as the Cardinals will have to play both Florida State and Clemson since all three are in the Atlantic Division. Louisville also has a tough non-conference slate with road games to Houston and Marshall on tap.

Athlons had this to say about uk:

Nov. 26 vs. Kentucky

Rivalry games are always difficult because your opponent usually knows you better than most teams. This year’s Governor’s Cup matchup in Lexington shouldn’t be any different.


After back-to-back 5-7 seasons, the Wildcats should be a contender to make their first bowl game since 2010. With new coordinators coming over from Cincinnati, expect the Wildcats to look and (hopefully) perform differently on offense this fall.


Now I don’t know whether to stop reading Athlons or if uk is going to be better. Or does Athlons think uk will make a bowl since 5-7 teams are eligible for bowls now? Who knows….
