College Football Week 11: #11 Louisville At Syracuse
|Not too many people are talking about Charlie Strong’s 9-0 Louisville team. That’s partly because of a weak schedule, but the Cardinals will have their hands full on Saturday just as they will in the regular season finale at Rutgers.||Coaching||Doug Marrone is in his fourth year and the Orange is 4-5; it’s been a disappointing season to say the least. This team has a chance for a huge victory on Saturday.|
|Why isn’t Teddy Bridgewater getting more Heisman consideration? He is the fifth rated passer in the country and is coming off a five-touchdown game.||Offense||Ryan Nassib is 11th in the country in passing yards per game, but this offense has been incredibly inconsistent.|
|This defense is average across the board. A good offense will move the ball against the Cardinals. Syracuse will be a good test.||Defense||Syracuse’s defense is middle-of-the-pack and will probably need to force a turnover or two to hang with the Cardinals.|
|Louisville’s kickoff team had a lot of trouble last week; the opening kickoff was returned 93 yards for a score. Other than its field goal kicking, its special teams play has been poor.||Special Teams||Syracuse fumbled the opening kickoff last week; it was just one play, but it was representative of ’Cuse’s special teams play this season, which has been horrendous.|
