Louisville 27– FSU 24

Home crowd gets the boys hype. Cooley, Jordan and Evans eat up FSU on the ground. Defense matches up well with FSU & is better than normal vs the run. Jordan Travis throws for nice yardage & keeps them in the game. It all comes down to the Cards driving for the win & kicking a FG to win the game. The Cards are 2-2 at home vs FSU since joining the ACC & the average ppg has been UofL 42.5 to 26.5 for FSU. Even in the 2 losses it took a td with a minute left for them to win & a historic comeback for the other. This game is always close. Let’s get em!

Louisville 24 – FSU 20

The over/under is 54.5. So Louisville would have to score 27 points to get their half of the total. Louisville has scored a total of 27 points this season in 2 games. So scoring more points in this game against the toughest defense they will have faced this season seems unlikely. But hopefully, finally playing at home ignites this struggling offense. I see a battle on the ground in a low scoring affair. FSU is 2-14 in their last 16 road games so I’m going with the home team despite all other signs that say go against the home team here. Cunningham has yet to throw a TD pass this season but he gets the game winner to Ford on Friday night.

The defense continues the momentum from the UCF game with the help of the home-crowd. The offense still stutters but shows improvement. Malik has 3 passing touchdowns & the field goal at the end solidifies a Cardinal Party in the locker room.

Trevor Edwards


FSU 28 – Louisville 17 

Yes the defense looked improved against UCF but Jordan Travis is a much better QB than John Rhys Plumlee. The ‘Noles backs are very talented We may have beaten UCF but we also got routed by Syracuse and I can’t forget that. This seems to be the turning point of the season good or bad which way will the cards go?

FSU 31 – Louisville 21

Seminoles’ biggest strength is the Cardinals’ biggest weakness. FSU leads the conference in rushing yards per game, while Louisville has the 19th-worst rushing defense in the nation. Travis does just enough to come out victorious against his former squad.

UofL does just enough to win again, but still need to find consistency on both sides of the ball.

Last week was fun, but we are about to find out how good or bad this Cards team actually is on Friday.

Blake McCauley


FSU 31 – Louisville 27

in a knockdown, drag out. FSU runs the ball over 50% of their plays which is a terrible match up for Louisville’s defense. I also see Louisville having a solid game on the ground but ultimately, Jordan Travis makes some key plays down the stretch of the 4th to hold off the Cards.
