LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville football team is becoming less and less a fan of the ‘two is better than one’ mantra.
For the second-consecutive week to begin the season, the Cardinals’ defense is facing a familiar challenge: preparing to see potentially two different quarterbacks in a game. Louisville opens its ACC schedule on Saturday at North Carolina, which trotted out Chazz Surratt and Brandon Harris as its signal callers in a season-opening loss to Cal.
The Tar Heels’ duo combined to go 25 for 44 in the air, with one touchdown, while rushing 21 times for 71 yards and one score.
Fortunately, Louisville understands the importance of film study for this type of situation and it worked to the Cardinals’ advantage last week. Louisville beat Purdue 35-28 to improve to 1-0, with the defense recording four sacks and three interceptions. Not to mention, the Cardinals’ unit tallied seven quarterback hits.
