LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville's nonconference schedule ended with the complete game that coach Charlie Strong had been seeking. His challenge now to players is carrying that effort and focus into league play.
The Cardinals get a week off to get ready.
Seventh-ranked Louisville (4-0) enters a bye week fresh off of Saturday's 72-0 thrashing of Florida International that showed how powerful they can be when locked in mentally and physically. The effort resulted in two dominating halves, several defensive milestones and Louisville's most lopsided win in six years that matched the program's fifth-largest victory margin.
Louisville expects stiffer challenges from American Athletic Conference opponents when league play begins Oct. 5 at Temple. Still, the Cardinals are the favorites to win the ACC in their lone season in the conference.
