I would make sure that Cunningham cant beat us. Take his running away and make him win the game with his armIf we can get a 2 score lead, we will run it down their throats the rest of the game. Louisville is not that strong defending the rushing game.
Their own rushing game is only average, after you take Malik Cunningham out of the mix. He was their leading rusher last year by over 300 yards than the next guy.
Their top 2 receivers also transferred out for bigger stages. They replaced them with guys from the portal, but there may not be such smooth communication, understanding of where the receiver is going to take the route, etc., as he had with last year's receivers.
I would put the Rover on Cunningham all game, to take away his danger out of the pocket. Keep him in the pocket and then turn loose our pass rush.
I know they have smoked us several times, but I really feel like we have a pretty good shot on opening night.
