LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Numbers-wise, No. 10 Louisville appears to have few weaknesses following routs of Charlotte and Syracuse that have vaulted the Cardinals and quarterback Lamar Jackson near the top of several statistical categories.

Coach Bobby Petrino sees flaws that need to be corrected, especially with No. 2 Florida State expected to pounce on any mistake in Saturday’s big showdown.

The Cardinals may not have to be perfect against the Seminoles, but Petrino says there’s little room for error.

The Cardinals’ want to keep rolling in one of the program’s biggest games that could help establish an early favorite in the ACC’s Atlantic Division. Both the Cardinals and Florida State still have to face No. 5 Clemson — the preseason favorite to repeat as conference champions — with Louisville visiting the Tigers on Oct. 1.
