Louisville played a tough early season schedule and after losses to Auburn, Houston and Clemson they have won 5 o0f their last 6 games and if they beat Virginia they will be bowl eligible. 3 of the 4 losses by the Cardinals this season have come against top 25 teams.
The Cardinals are a 13.5-point betting favorite facing a 3-win Virginia team that has lost 2 of their last 3 games.
In their last games Louisville beat Syracuse 41-17 and Virginia lost to Miami 27-21.
This season Louisville is 3-2 at home and Virginia is 0-4 on the road.
Virginia ranks 61st in the nation in passing yards per game and 105th in rushing yards per game.
For Virginia to win they will need a solid game from QB Matt Johns and while he has had some good games he has more INT than TD on the season and in his last 3 games he has 2 TD and 6 INT.
Canaan Severin and RB Taquan Mizzell each have over 530 receiving yards on the season and Johns needs to get them the ball and they have to make plays.
Taquan Mizzell has been running the ball well as of late and has rushed for 283 yards in his last 3 games.
Virginia’s offense has their work cut out for them facing a Louisville defense that ranks 15th in the nation. In their last 7 games only Florida State has scored more than 20 points on them.

All of Virginia’s wins this season have come at home.
The Cardinals are led by their passing offense, which ranks 39th in the nation and their rushing offense ranks 93rd.
In the win over Syracuse QB Lamar Jackson was inured and Kyle Bolin came in completed 24-of-35 passes for 362 yards, 3 TD and 1 INT and he should get the start in this game.
Jackson is also the leading rusher for the Cardinals and with him likely out Brandon Radcliff has to step up and take some pressure off Bolin in the backfield.
Virginia ranks 94th in the nation defending the pass and 57th defending the run.
The Cavaliers have has issues in their secondary all season and it will be key that their pass rush get to the Louisville QB or they may be in a for a long day.
