Louisville Quick Preview

Three in a row?
Syracuse is still on the road, and Syracuse is still looking for a Big East win. The good news is that in the past two years Louisville is the cure for what ails Syracuse. The only problem is that Syracuse has about as many scholarship athletes as a Texas high school team as players. So who will come out on top?

Both teams have exact same records entering the game. Louisville is currently led by freshman QB Will Stein (43/78, 450yds, 0 TD, 1 INT) who has only started three games in his career. Their running back Victor Anderson (86att, 480yds, 5.6avg, 5 TD) is decent as well. Syracuse and Louisville are fairly close in total yards, passing yards and rushing yards. They also average within a point of each other, with Syracuse averaging 20 points a game, and Louisville 19. I’m saying this; Syracuse should win this game despite being a shell of its former team just mere weeks ago. Syracuse is just north of Louisville in terms of offensive talent. Additionally, Syracuse is currently better at the quarterback position, even though it is a close race. That is also knowing that Greg Paulus and Ryan Nassib will split time. It would seem to be that Louisville’s rookie quarterback is just too inconsistent to be able to exploit the sub-par secondary of Syracuse. Therefore, if Syracuse can stop giving up too much through the air via the long ball, Syracuse should win the game. Syracuse over Louisville yet again 24 to 17.

Syracuse needs this win to not only improve team and fan moral, but also to save face in the wins and losses column, as four wins is an improvement over last year. And this win is very reachable, even with the current losses Syracuse has. This game is on the road, which means I’ll be watching in anticipation for what could be another big road win against Louisville. Hopefully that will be the case.
