Louisville will play host to another Kentucky team in the WKU Hilltoppers at Cardinal Stadium on Saturday, September 12th at 8:00 p.m. Cardinals are coming off a pretty good season as they finished second place in the ACC right behind the perfect Clemson Tigers. WKU Hilltoppers overachieved in 2019 gathering 9 wins and even picked up a bowl win to finish the season.
The Hilltoppers are very fortunate this season as they are returning A LOT of their starts from last season. 52 of the 65 players for the WKU squad are returning to campus in 2020 to get going on this football season. The Toppers will look to avenge their week three loss from last season as they got smacked by the Cardinals 38-21.
Senior Tyrrell Pigrome will start under center in 2020 for this Western Kentucky team. Pigrome is a transfer from Maryland after losing the starting job in camp last season. He completed 56.7 percent of his passes for 1,777 yards and nine touchdowns during four years with the Terrapins.
Defensively, is where the Hilltoppers thrive as they allowed just an average of 20.2 points per game. That includes their loss to Louisville where they allowed almost double their average points.
Louisville will hope to start their season with a bang as they have a tough schedule up ahead with strictly ACC teams. Scott Satterfield will back for his second year at the program and will try to compete with Clemson for the top spot in the ACC.
Micale Cunningham is slotted to be the starting QB for Satterfield’s offense in their first game of the year after a very efficient 2019. Cunningham posted over 3000 passing yards to pair with his 22 touchdowns in 13 games last season. The Cardinals have one of the best relievers in the country on their team as junior Tutu Atwell will return to play this season. Atwell was a burner at wideout last season setting a school-record in receiving yards and led the ACC in touchdowns.
Cardinals need to tighten up defensively in 2020 after allowing over 30 points a game in 2019. Satterfield’s squad suffered a couple key injuries last year to the defense, but that still is no excuse to all that many points when you’re trying to be competitive.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick:
The under is the play in this one as WKU was a top 25 defensive team in college football last season. Lousiville is a juggernaut on offense, so they will get their points, but I don’t see the Hilltoppers keeping up with the firepower of the Cardinals.
