Louisville @ Duke
Current record: Louisville 5-5; Duke 3-7
What to know
The Louisville Cardinals have enjoyed comfort at home in their last two games, but now they have to hit the streets. The U of L and Duke Blue Devils will go head-to-head in the ACC battle at 7:30 p.m. ET Thursday at Brooks Field in Wallace Wade. The Cardinals will still feel good after a win, while Duke will be looking to get back into the victory column.
You’re bound to get a good result if you beat your opponent every quarter, and that’s exactly how it went at U of L last week. They were completely in charge, beating Syracuse Orange 41-3 at home. The team ran away with 35 points in the first half and mostly just sat above the men in the second half to take the win. QB Malik Cunningham continued his frenzied drop routine, four times TD and 209 yards in 18 attempts along with punching in a hasty knockdown touch.
U of L’s defense is also present, as it overcame ‘Cuse’s offensive line to sack QB Garrett Shrader four times to lose a total of 39 yards. Heavy lifting performed by LB Yasir Abdullah and LB Allen Smith, each person loaded two sacks.
Meanwhile, the Blues were predicted to have a tough game last week, and that’s exactly how things turned out. They found themselves reluctant to take a nasty 48-17 punch in the gut against the Virginia Tech Hokies. Duke loses points despite a quality match from QB Jordan Moore, who passed once TD and 63 yards in 12 attempts in addition to diving in once TD and 113 yards.
The Cardinals are the favorites in this game, with a 20-point margin of victory. Odds players have seen things turn out differently for U of L, which is 5-4 against the odds.
The U of L’s win brought them up to 5-5 while the Blue Devils’ defeat dragged them down to 3-7. A pair of defensive numbers to note before the game starts: U of L are facing competition for the 199th most touchdowns allowed nationally, after dropping 18 out of the season. Duke have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 240th worst nationally in the number of touches allowed, with 24 on the season. Maybe one of these Achilles heels will get in the way of the losing team.
