We have reached week three of the college football season which means there are still a lot of non conference showdowns. That is the case in this game when the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers make the trip to Cardinal Stadium to take on the Louisville Cardinals.
This will be the first meeting between the two teams since 1998 when the Cardinals came out ahead 63-34.
Western Kentucky Hilltoppers
The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers had high hopes for this season but they have crashed down pretty hard especially after last weekends game.
After the first game against the Wisconsin Badgers they took on the Maine Bears in their last game and came in as nine point favorites.
They really struggled all game though and couldn’t pull it out in the end losing by three and raising some serious question marks about this program and team.
Drew Eckels is the starting quarterback for the Hilltoppers and he has actually played alright, but he has had issues getting it in the end zone throwing only three touchdowns through two games.
To win this game the offense needs to find a way to get going and get in the end zone. They can’t settle for field goals if they want any chance to come out ahead.
On the other side of this matchup is the Louisville Cardinals who also had question marks coming into the season trying to replace Lamar Jackson.
After getting beaten up hard by the Alabama Crimson Tide in the first game they played much better against a lesser Indiana State team.
The defense looked really good giving up only seven points and that was the difference as they won the game but failed to cover the spread.
In this game the defense needs to be good again. They need to keep the Hilltoppers out of the end zone if they want a chance in this game.
