The teams met in last year’s Russell Athletic Bowl and it was Louisville with the 36-9 rout of Miami as a -5 ½ point wagering favorite. The game was very one sided as the Cardinals gained 554 yards with Miami posting just 174 rushing yards. Teddy Bridgewater was under center for Louisville and he now exits for the NFL. The job in 2014 will go to sophomore Will Gardner for head coach Bobby Petrino. Gardner in his freshman campaign saw mop up work in his freshman season last year and hit on 8 of 12 passes for 112 yards with two touchdowns. Louisville was an outstanding defensive club but must replace seven starters to the defensive side of the football. The Cardinals were a one loss team in 2013 and that loss came at home to Central Florida by a 38-35 score laying -14 ½ point favorite. Head coach Al Golden had a little motivation in the summer as no doubt this game has been circled after the embarrassment eight months ago. Miami has to break in a new quarterback and they will go with freshman Brad Kaaya. Their stud running back Duke Johnson is back for Miami and is cleared to play after suffering a season ending broken leg last season. The Hurricanes will have seven starters back on both the offense and defensive side of the field.
