Last night pretty much settled the first part of the question as the Cards beat favored UCF at the Bounce House 20-14. The Knights were held to 339 total yards comprised of 131 passing (16-34) and 208 rushing (38 attemps for 5.5 yard average).

Louisville rushed for 226 (45 attempts 5 yard average) Cunningham accounted for 121 of them. Cunningham continued to struggle passing 14 for 29 only 48%.

UCF is probably overrated but beating them at home was an achievement. I would say this upset largely belongs to the LU defense.

If you watched the game I think you would agree that SU beat a pretty good but not great Louisville team. The fact that we dominated them is particularly encouraging.

That’s the difference. It wasn’t a dog fight and we luckily won. We dominated against a pretty good team that could still improve as the season goes on. As well as dominating against a QB that could have potentially given us fits, made us look bad, and create a few ESPN highlight reels.

Cuse is good. I think this team took such a huge leap from last year that everyone is just in a bit of shock. As we all know, we were better than our record last year too. Cuse is legit.
How many losses where 1 wonk play would have made it a win?

this team makes plays when it matters. The pick in the end zone goes the other way and it is a 3 point game. They then put the foot on the gas and won. They leave no doubt with UConn start. Very optimistic
