5) What is the most important thing Louisville has to do to win?

Keep D’Eriq King from going Lynn Bowden Jr. (If you don’t know who that is and why that matters, just google “Louisville vs Kentucky box score 2019“). Against WKU, everyone knew that they were going to run the football 20-30-plus times simply to test if Louisville’s defense was prepared to stop it.

I expect every OC with a rushing quarterback to test Louisville’s rush defense and make them prove they can stop a high powered offense.”

Canes Warning summary and conclusion

For those unaware, Bowden was the Kentucky quarterback in 2019 who was converted from WR when the Wildcats first two QBs were lost with injuries. In a game played in the rain, Bowden attempted only two passes but ran 22 times for 284 yards and four TDs. That set an SEC record for rushing yards by a QB in one game.

Bowden finished the 2019 season with 1,468 and 13 TDs. He was not much of a threat throwing the ball and Louisville still could not stop him. If King and the Miami offense can continue to run the ball the way the Hurricanes did against UAB, the Louisville defense could be in for a long night.

Defensively, Miami has to limit the big plays. Louisville has multiple players as mentioned with the potential to make big plays.

The Cardinals were one of the most explosive teams in college football in 2019. That should continue in 2020 with most of their star skill position players returning.
