Louisville vs Virginia: Postgame Recap


The Louisville Cardinals defeated the visiting Cavaliers of Virginia today by a final score of 38-21. After the bye week, Louisville bounced back from the loss at Wake Forest two weeks ago with a solid performance today.

Lamar Jackson did Lamar Jackson things today, accounting for 4 touchdowns (3 passing, 1 rushing) with 195 passing yards (15/26) and 147 rushing yards on 15 attempts. I hope everyone is enjoying watching this guy in a Louisville uniform because his legendary time as a Cardinal is nearing its end.

Dae Williams proved that the Louisville backfield will be in good hands for the foreseeable future with 88 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown. Receivers Jaylen Smith and Seth Dawkins caught Lamar’s 3 touchdown passes. Smith finished the game with 5 receptions for 84 yards and 2 touchdowns, one of which was a spectacular one-handed grab. Seth Dawkins matched Smith’s reception total with 5 of his own for 55 yards and a touchdown.

The defense looked better today than it had in a long time. After Virginia waltzed down the field on their first possession for a touchdown, it appeared more of the same lackluster defense was on the menu for today. However, the defense didn’t dwell on it and made corrections and plays throughout the game.

Up next: Louisville hosts Syracuse next Saturday in the last game at Cardinal Stadium this season.

Go Cards!
