Louisville continues their push back towards the CFB Playoff as they welcome in Duke on Friday night.
Duke enters play with a .500 record as they search for a marquee win on their resume here in 2016.
Duke Blue Devils
The Blue Devils had a marquee win under their belts when they wen on the road and took down Notre Dame a few weeks ago.
However, with how bad the Irish have been, now the Blue Devils need another big time win and they’ll have a shot here against the #7 team in the nation.
Duke comes in off a win over Army as they have no won 2 of their last 3 games. It was the defense that stepped up in the Army win, as they allowed just 6 points.
Duke’s defense is going to do exactly what they did against Army and then about 100 times more to stop this Cardinals offense.
To pull off this upset, everything will have to go perfectly, meaning ball security from the offense, along with some stops.
This Duke defense is no push over, as they average just 21.5 points against.
The Cardinals have a tall task to get themselves back into the BCS Playoff, but right now they are certainly poised to do so.
Louisville sits 7th in the nation and will have one more huge game against Houston later on this season, but if they can run the table and get some help, there is hope for Lamar Jackson and company.
The star QB continues to put up big numbers and make a strong case for his Heisman resume.
Jackson has 14 touchdowns to his credit, 688 yards rushing, and 1625 yards passing.
Because of Jackson, this Louisville team ranks tops in a lot of the offensive categories. They are averaging 659.2 yards per game (1st) and 58 points per game (1st).
Look for the Cardinals to use their pace here as they are simply faster than this Duke team.
