The Louisville Cardinals moved to No. 17 in the latest Amway Coaches Poll. This moves the Cardinals up one spot from last week’s Coaches poll, and after they routed Murray State 55-10 on Saturday.
2016 Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson had a short but productive afternoon, throwing for 249 yards and 3 touchdowns in a little over a half of play, while adding 100 rushing yards and scoring another rushing touchdown to his day’s totals. This performance kick started the Louisville offense into scoring their first touchdown less than five minutes into the game, and helped them cruise to a 35-3 lead after 30 minutes of play.
Cardinals was No. 17 in the preseason Coaches poll, then moved up one spot to No. 16 after their season-opening victory over Purdue. Louisville moved up to two more spots to No. 14 after their victory over ACC rival North Carolina, but dropped six spots to No. 20 following their home loss to No. 2 Clemson. Last week, the Cardinals moved up two spots to No. 18 after bouncing back with a 42-3 win over Kent State.
The Cardinals travel to No. 24 North Carolina State on Oct. 5, with a 8 p.m. ET kickoff on ESPN.
