LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville's plan for its bowl game against Miami doesn't include a bunch of changes.
Sure, the offensive falloff was obvious down the stretch as the No. 18 Cardinals. Even quarterback Teddy Bridgewater looked flat at times and Louisville had to work hard to score points in the second half of the season. But the Cardinals (11-1) averaged 453 yards per game this year.
So as Louisville begins practice on Monday in Orlando, Fla., in preparation for Saturday's Russell Athletic Bowl against Miami (9-3), the focus is on executing the same gameplan that has yielded a 22-3 record the past two seasons.
Having had time to recharge after the regular season and re-examine issues that led to their late-season offensive struggles, the Cardinals are eager to execute better against the Hurricanes.
