Louisville remains at No. 17 in the Week 5 AP Poll after win against Murray State

The Louisville Cardinals remains at No. 17 in the latest AP Poll. This news comes after the Cardinals 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 kicked start the Louisville offense into scoring their first touchdown less than five minutes into the game, and cruising to a 35-3 lead after 30 minutes of play.

Cardinals was No. 16 in the preseason AP poll, then dropped one spot to No. 17 after their season-opening victory over Purdue. Louisville moved up three spots to No. 14 after their victory over ACC rival North Carolina, but dropped five spots to No. 19 following their home loss to No. 2 Clemson. Last week, the Cardinals moved up two spots to No. 17 after bouncing back with a 42-3 win over Kent State.

The Cardinals travel to North Carolina State on Oct. 5, with a 8 p.m. ET kickoff on ESPN.
