Louisville football looked prepared to turn the corner towards a big bowl berth, only to fall short against the Miami Hurricanes. We take a look at the three major takeaways for the Cards.
Louisville football’s reality check came this past Saturday against the Miami Hurricanes. In a year that’s felt like a dream for Louisville fans, Saturday’s contest was anything but. Miami was in control from start to finish, leading by 14 at the end of the first, 21 at the half and 25 by the time it was all said and done.
With Wake Forest’s loss on Saturday, if Louisville had won, they’d have been in the driver’s seat for a New Year’s Six bowl berth. So that makes this one sting a little more than maybe it should.
You can’t win them all and for it to be one year removed from a season where Louisville couldn’t win at all, you still have to be as positive as possible with this Cardinal football team going forward.
