LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Louisville players insist they won’t look past winless Florida International on Saturday even though the No. 7 Cardinals are heavily favored to win.
The young Panthers (0-3) enter the game allowing an average of 38.3 points per contest FCS Bethune-Cookman rushed for 311 yards and four touchdowns against them. Louisville (3-0) is averaging 40 points a contest and rushed for a season-high 242 yards in a win over Kentucky.
The Cardinals also hold the edge in several other categories and are 42-point favorites.
Still, Louisville remains wary and respectful of FIU because of their 1-1 record against the Panthers, who won here two years ago and played Louisville close last year in Miami.
FIU’s winless record makes them even more dangerous and desperate in the minds of the Cardinals.
