Louisville Football was beaten by Miami at home last night 47-34. It wasn’t a particularly well-played game by the defense and, despite the offense putting up over 500 yards, they weren’t consistent all game. Yet, Louisville remains ranked in this week’s AP Poll.

The Cards dropped to 24th, being ranked just ahead of Marshall. Next week’s opponent, Pittsburgh, is ranked 21st. Clemson, Alabama, Oklahoma, Georgia, and Florida make up the top 5. The rest of the top 10 is LSU, Notre Dame, Auburn, Texas, and Texas A&M. Louisville will face 7th-ranked Notre Dame in Notre Dame Stadium later this season. The team UofL lost to Miami moved up to 12th. North Carolina at 11th and Virginia Tech at 20th are the other ranked ACC teams. The Hokies will visit the Ville later this season.
Louisville looks to this week where they will hit the road to face off with Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is not allowing fans so that should help the Cards. This game kicks off at noon after two late games to open the season for UofL. So, it will be interesting to see if that has any effect on the Cards energy. UofL will be looking to bounce back into the win column and get back on track.
