After taking care of business in Indianapolis against the Indiana Hoosiers in week 3 Jeff Brohm and company are back in the Ville for a week 4 matchup against the Boston College Eagles. The Eagles coached by Jeff Hafley started the season off 1-2. The first 3 games of their season were played at home losing to Northern Illinois in a week 1 overtime game 27-24, then in week 2 they barely slipped past Holy Cross in a 31-28 win and finally in week 3 the Eagles took on future ACC champions the Florida State Seminoles but in the end the number three ranked Seminoles pulled off a 31-29 victory over Boston College.

Saturday September 23rd almost 50,000 fans pack into Cardinal Stadium to watch the week 4 game, after the Cards great 3-0 start to the season the fans are ready to see what else this new era of Louisville Football can do. Boston College received the opening kickoff quickly getting a couple first downs then they decide to go for it on 4th and 2 at Louisville's 42 yard line but they were no match for the Cardinals defense. Louisville answers back with a 33 yard Jawhar Jordan touchdown and a 1 yard passing touchdown to tight end Nate Kurisky to close out the 1st quarter the cards were up 14-0.

The 2nd quarter is were things really started to heat up with a 45 yard passing touchdown to Ahmari Huggins-Bruce. Then Jack Plummer took one in himself a 9 yard rushing touchdown for the quaterback. Jawhar Jordan also had a 2 yard rushing touchdown. Boston College answers back achieving 2 touchdowns in the quarter. With just 33 seconds left in the half Jawhar Jordan gets set up for a 42 yard run and after a holding penalty Louisville is on Boston College's 42 yard line. With only 16 seconds left on the clock Jack Plummer completes a beautiful 42 yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Jamari Thrash. Louisville was up 42-14 heading into halftime.

The Cardinals opening play of the second half is a 75 yard touchdown pass to running back Jawhar Jordan. Then another 55 yard touchdown pass for Ahmari Huggins-Bruce. The Eagles also scored another touchdown and at the end of the quarter the score was 56-21. In the 4th quarter Boston College scored the only touchdown of the quarter and the final score was Louisville 56 Boston College 28. The Cardinals offense just could not be shut down this game with quaterback Jack Plummer achieving 388 yards completing 18 out of his 21 passes and scoring a total of 6 touchdowns. Jawhar Jordan also had an impressive day with 18 carries for 134 yards and 2 touchdowns plus his 75 yard receiving touchdown. Huggins-Bruce complemented that with his 3 receptions for 110 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Overall this was a great game for Louisville improving to 4-0 under a new head coach and a total rebuild in the program. I dont think anyone saw this coming for Jeff Brohm and Louisville in their first year back together.
