College Football News Predicts Louisville’s Season & Ranks Schedule

Posted on Jul 14 2012 - 3:57pm by Ethan Moore

College Football News came out with their predictions for the Cards as well as the entire Big East.  They also rank each league member’s schedule.  Do you agree or disagree with their predictions?

Non-Conference Games: Kentucky, Missouri State, North Carolina, at FIU, at Southern Miss
Realistic Best Case Record: 10-2
Worst Case Record: 6-6
Likely Finish: 9-3

Preseason Projected Wins: Kentucky, Missouri State, at FIU, at Southern Miss, South Florida, Cincinnati, Temple, at Syracuse, Connecticut

Preseason Projected Losses: North Carolina, at Pitt, at Rutgers

Summary: The Cardinals have a season of streaks to work through starting with three home games followed up by three road games and followed up by three more home games. So can they get through that midsection of FIU, Southern Miss, and Pitt on the road? If so, then this could be a special season with a relatively light non-conference schedule – with the toughest games against Kentucky and North Carolina – and with four conference road dates in five games. However, the slate closes out with two road games in the final three including a key date with Rutgers to close things out five days after hosting Connecticut.
