Louisville braces for Air Force option in First Responder Bowl

The game may be on a Tuesday, but Air Force coach Troy Calhoun is doing his best to structure the week of the First Responder Bowl like a normal game week.

“Today is like a Monday,” Calhoun said Thursday after his first practice in the Dallas area, where the Falcons meet Louisville on Dec. 28. “Then tomorrow (Friday) is a Tuesday and we will proceed from there.”

How Air Force (9-3) proceeds from there will probably depend on how the Cardinals (6-6) react to the Falcons’ triple-option ground game. The Falcons lead FBS in rushing yards per game with 341.4, while Louisville allows 156.7, but rarely faces the option.

Brad Roberts paces Air Force’s rushing attack with 1,279 yards and 13 touchdowns, averaging 4.6 yards a carry. Quarterback Hazziq Daniels has gained 705 yards and nine scores on 5.0 yards per carry, while Deandre Hughes has contributed 471 (8.6 ypc) and Emmanuel Michel 421 (6.1 ypc).

The Falcons came pretty close to going 12-0 and playing for the Mountain West Conference title. Their three losses were all one-possession defeats, by a total of 17 points. They’re coming off a 48-14 rout of UNLV in their regular-season finale on Nov. 26, when they rushed for 511 yards and did not have to throw a single pass.

Meanwhile, Louisville aims to secure a winning season after dropping its regular-season finale on Nov. 26 to in-state rival Kentucky 52-21. The Cardinals’ rushing defense allowed 362 yards in that one.

“It was a bad night for us,” Louisville coach Scott Satterfield said. “This night does not speak of what we’ve done this season. We’ve been in most every game we’ve played… I think we’re getting better as a football team.”

The Cardinals’ offense revolves around quarterback Malik Cunningham. He has thrown for 2,734 yards and 18 touchdowns and needs just 32 yards to reach 1,000 rushing. Having rushed for 19 touchdowns, he has been responsible for 37 scores.

Cunningham is the only player in the country who has both rushed and passed for more than 15 touchdowns.

This will be the first meeting of the two programs, which are both .500 all-time in bowl games: Louisville is 11-11-1 and Air Force is 13-13-1.

Louisville stifles Syracuse in 41-3 rout

Malik Cunningham threw four touchdowns and ran for another as host Louisville took control in the second quarter and rolled to a 41-3 rout of Syracuse on Saturday afternoon.

The Cardinals posted an easy victory on the day 2016 Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson’s jersey was retired at haltime. Jackson joined Johnny Unitas as the second Louisville player to earn the honor.

When it came time for the retirement of Jackson’s No. 8 jersey, the Cardinals held a 35-3 lead, thanks to the efforts of Cunningham.

Cunningham, who was sidelined for part of the second half during last week’s loss to Clemson due to an ankle injury, scored on a 6-yard TD run with 9:13 remaining in the first quarter and then threw four touchdown passes before halftime.

He connected with Tyler Harrell on a 33-yard TD late in the first quarter and then found Ahmari Huggins-Bruce for TDs of 6 and 17 yards respectively. Huggins-Bruce’s TDs were sandwiched between a 41-yard TD pass to Jordan Watkins.

Cunningham completed 13 of 18 passes for 209 yards on a day when he rushed for a season-low 19 yards as Louisville’s offense totaled 382 yards and converted 17 first downs.

Two field goals from James Turner accounted for the other points as the Cardinals (5-5, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) scored at least 40 points for the second time this season and won for the second time in six games to move within one win of becoming bowl-eligible.

Cunningham also had help from Louisville’s defense, which bottled up Syracuse running back Sean Tucker and the Orange’s rushing attack, which entered the game leading the ACC with 247.7 rushing yards per game. Tucker entered the game at 1,267 rushing yards, which trailed Michigan State Kenneth Walker III’s by 63 yards.

Tucker was held to 95 yards and narrowly missed his eighth straight 100-yard game.

Syracuse quarterback Garrett Shrader was 10-for-18 for 46 yards. He also rushed 20 times for 43 yards and was sacked four times

Syracuse (5-5, 2-4) was unable to win a third straight game and unable to become bowl-eligible after going a combined 6-17 in the previous two seasons.

RB Sean Tucker chases rushing title as Syracuse faces Louisville

A bye week afforded Syracuse star running back Sean Tucker a chance to relax, but it also saw him lose some ground to Michigan State standout Kenneth Walker III for the national rushing title.

Tucker is coming off his most productive game of the season and seeks an eighth straight 100-yard game Saturday afternoon as the Orange visit the Louisville Cardinals and attempt to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2018.

Tucker enters the final three games with 1,267 rushing yards, which trails Walker by 73 yards nationally. Tucker has eight 100-yard rushing games this season and totaled 207 yards on the ground when Syracuse overcame some early sluggishness in a 21-6 home win over Boston College two weeks ago.

“Sean knows what to do, it’s just making sure that he stays locked in and very seldom is he not,” Syracuse coach Dino Babers said at his press conference Monday.

Against Boston College, Syracuse scored all its points in the third quarter when Tucker’s 51-yard TD run preceded a 48-yard touchdown run by quarterback Garrett Shrader and a 64-yard punt return by Courtney Jackson. The Orange scored their points in a span of 4:53 while gaining 293 yards on the ground after playing five straight games decided by five points or less.

Syracuse (5-4, 2-3 ACC) leads the ACC in rushing at 247.7 yards per game and has three chances to get its sixth win to clinch a bowl bid after going a combined 6-17 in the previous two seasons. If the Orange do not beat Louisville, their remaining games are against North Carolina State and Pittsburgh, which were ranked 19th and 25th respectively last week in the playoff rankings.

“It’s a very difficult task,” Baber said. “The three teams we have to play are outstanding.”

Louisville (4-5, 2-4) is looking for a strong finish to also get a chance at becoming bowl eligible. The Cardinals were 3-1 after their 31-23 win at Florida State on Sept. 25, but are 1-4 since with losses to Wake Forest, Virginia, NC State and Clemson.

Louisville is third in the ACC at 205.0 rushing yards per contest.

Quarterback Malik Cunningham leads the league with 15 rushing TDs and had two on Saturday, but the Cardinals allowed 13 points in the fourth quarter following Cunningham’s 51-yard TD run and took a 30-24 loss to Clemson.

“The guys are resilient,” Louisville coach Scott Satterfield said. “They just keep battling. At some point. I told them, ‘We’re really close, and at some point we’re going to get over the hump and you are going to start winning these games.’”

Cunningham also injured his ankle in the third quarter but returned in the fourth and got Louisville deep in the red zone before stumbling on a roll-out on fourth-and-goal with 10 seconds left.

“He took it hard, as we all did, but he’s doing good,” Satterfield said. “He’s in a much better place now.”

Malik Cunningham, Louisville set to collide with Clemson

Another week, another “freak show” opponent for Clemson.

Just ask Tigers coach Dabo Swinney, whose team will hit the road to face Louisville and its quarterback, Malik Cunningham, on Saturday night.

“It seems like every single week I look up and we’re playing a freak show at quarterback,” Swinney said. “Their quarterback is another great player.”

The Tigers have faced Syracuse’s Garrett Shrader, Pitt’s Kenny Pickett and Florida State’s Jordan Travis over the past three games. Now Cunningham looms.

Cunningham has rushed for 556 yards — the third-best total among ACC quarterbacks — and shares the league lead with 13 rushing touchdowns.

“This guy has played a lot of football and has a great skill set,” Swinney said. “He’s a problem with his legs and is an excellent passer.”

Clemson (5-3, 4-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) has fallen flat offensively this season, and its six-year reign atop the league is in jeopardy. The Tigers, who have lost three regular-season games for the first time since 2014, are coming off a 30-20 victory against Florida State, but they had to score 13 points in the final three minutes to pull out the win.

Clemson quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei has struggled, and the Tigers’ offense ranks last in the league in scoring at 21.3 points per game.

The Tigers’ ground game has shown signs of life, however, led by freshman running back Will Shipley. After missing a few games with a broken bone in his leg, Shipley has returned with a vengeance, rushing for 180 yards in his past two games and producing 358 all-purpose yards.

“Offensively they’ve not put up the numbers they’ve been used to putting up,” Louisville coach Scott Satterfield said. “They have a lot of new players on that side of the ball.

“They’re used to winning. This year they have not as well as they have in the past when you think about it because they were so dominant the past seven or eight years. This year they’ve had a lot of close games and they’ve lost a few. … They’re still one of the best defenses in the country.”

Clemson’s defense ranks tops in the ACC and third best nationally, allowing only 15.0 points per game, but Louisville (4-4, 2-3) and its potent offense could pose a challenge. The Cardinals are one of only seven teams nationally to average more than 200 yards on the ground and 245 yards through the air.

“They’re 4-4, but they’ve literally lost two games that were tied in the last minute against Virginia and Wake Forest,” said Swinney, whose teams are 6-0 all-time against Louisville. “They’re another team that’s way better than its record. They’re a 4-4 team, but they’re a handful. Satterfield has those guys playing hard.”

Satterfield is hoping that the Cardinals’ chances may be enhanced by fans packing into Cardinal Stadium.

“We need to have our fans to be here, to be loud, to be all engaged into the game, and it can be — we certainly can be that here,” the coach said. “We’ve been that way here. We have to encourage the fans to come out and support us.”

NC State downs Louisville, 28-13

Devin Leary threw four touchdown passes, including a go-ahead strike in the first minute of the fourth quarter, as North Carolina State defeated visiting Louisville 28-13 on Saturday night in Raleigh, N.C.

Leary was 25-for-36 for 317 yards through the air, helping overcome the Wolfpack’s rushing woes. The team picked up just 44 yards on the ground, though it had its fourth consecutive game without a turnover.

NC State (6-2, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) is trying to stay within range of unbeaten Wake Forest in the ACC’s Atlantic Division in advance of their Nov. 13 meeting.

Leary hit Trent Pennix, who didn’t have a defender in the vicinity, with a 29-yard pass on the second play of the fourth quarter for the Wolfpack’s first lead since the first quarter.

Louisville closed to within 14-13 on James Turner’s 31-yard field goal at the 9:51 mark.

Leary’s third TD throw of the game went to Devin Carter for 12 yards with 5:53 left.

Louisville (4-4, 2-3) failed to pick up a first down on its ensuing possession. Leary made the Cardinals pay with a 10-yard scoring toss to C.J. Riley.

Louisville quarterback Malik Cunningham, who was the game’s top rusher with 76 yards on 18 carries, went 11-for-28 for 219 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Louisville finished with 215 rushing yards for the game.

NC State had only 205 yards of total offense through three quarters.

Turner put Louisville on top 10-7 with a 42-yard field goal to cap the first possession of the second half.

The offenses clicked at times early in the game.

After both teams drove deep into opposing territory and came up empty — the Wolfpack on a failed fourth-down run and Louisville on a missed 24-yard field goal — NC State struck first on Leary’s 19-yard pass to Emeka Emezie in the final minute of the first quarter.

Three plays later, Cunningham’s heave to Jordan Watkins, who broke free of the defense, resulted in a 76-yard touchdown on the last play of the first quarter.

NC State was in its first full game without linebacker Isaiah Moore, who suffered a season-ending knee injury a week earlier.

Still focused on ACC title game, NC State tangles with Louisville

North Carolina State would be best advised to look at what’s coming up because the Wolfpack might not be able to afford another stumble in their quest to reach the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game for the first time.

A matchup with visiting Louisville on Saturday night at Raleigh, N.C., is the next assignment.

The Wolfpack won’t dwell on the “what-if” elements of the past.

“I think when you start thinking about stuff like that, that’s when your season goes south,” NC State linebacker Drake Thomas said. “When you start thinking of ‘what if’ and what could have been, what should have been, it’s over. You can’t change it now.”

The Wolfpack (5-2, 2-1 ACC) dropped out of the Top 25 after a 31-30 loss at Miami on Saturday. NC State had spent four weeks in the ratings, rising as high as No. 18.

“There’s still a lot still in front of us,” NC State coach Dave Doeren said. “We got to pick these guys back up and get back to work. Get their spirits back up.”

Louisville (4-3, 2-2) knows how to recover from disappointment. The Cardinals bounced back from a one-point loss to Virginia by beating Boston College 28-14 last week.

A combination of a revived rushing attack and a stingy defense proved beneficial for the Cardinals.

“I think this is what we can be,” Louisville coach Scott Satterfield said. “We have to continue to get better. We have to develop, and these young guys are starting to make plays (on defense), which is awesome. I think obviously they’re going to keep getting better.”

The Cardinals rushed for a season-high 331 yards in the Boston College game, with quarterback Malik Cunningham running for three touchdowns. That ground attack helped Louisville overcome four turnovers.

“He’s a really good athlete, but he’s also an extreme competitor, and I think that just fuels him to try to get first downs and to make the play,” Satterfield said of Cunningham. “Sometimes that gets him in trouble, but you love the spirit he has and the way he plays.”

Confidence shouldn’t be a problem for the Cardinals.

“We just have to be consistent,” Louisville linebacker Dorian Jones said. “I’ve seen it in practice. I’ve seen it in spring ball. I’ve seen it in camp. We just have to be consistent and play our game.”

NC State, which will be playing on homecoming weekend, has concerns because linebacker Isaiah Moore sustained a season-ending injury Saturday. Standout linebacker Payton Wilson was lost for the year in the second game.

“The injuries are piling up a little bit,” said Doeren, who also announced that left guard Chandler Zavala is lost for the season.

NC State kicker Christopher Dunn became the program’s career scoring leader with a first-quarter field goal at Miami. However, he appeared to be injured following a fourth-quarter kick shortly after tumbling on a running-into-the-kicker penalty on Miami.

Struggling Boston College team faces rested Louisville next

After enduring back-to-back losses, Boston College looks to bounce back at Louisville on Saturday.

The Eagles’ latest setback was a 33-7 humbling at the hands of current No. 18 North Carolina State in Chestnut Hill, Mass., on Oct. 16.

Boston College (4-2, 0-2 ACC) managed just 20 points combined in its last two games. However, the Eagles face a Louisville squad also licking its wounds after losing two in a row. The Cardinals (3-3, 1-2) dropped a 34-33 heartbreaker to Virginia at home two weeks ago.

Louisville holds a 7-6 edge over Boston College in the all-time series, but the Eagles won 34-27 last year in Massachusetts.

“There’s no reason for anyone to panic or start thinking some crazy things,” Boston College head coach Jeff Hafley told reporters over the weekend. “Our guys are going to fight, and we’re going to get them better.”

One place the Eagles need improvement is at quarterback. Dennis Grosel completed just 54 percent of his passes and threw for only 194 yards in Boston College’s loss to North Carolina State.

However, Hafley told reporters there were plays to be made against the Wolfpack, and players need to do a better job executing around Grosel.

The Cardinals are coming off a bye week, so they’ve had two weeks to get ready for the Eagles.

Quarterback Malik Cunningham has been Louisville’s catalyst on offense, completing 64.4 percent of his passes for 1,577 yards and eight touchdowns, with just two interceptions.

Cunningham also has rushed for 347 yards and 10 touchdowns.

“We’re playing pretty well, but we can be so much better,” Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield said. “We have to continue to fight to get better and better, and it has to happen throughout the week in practice, coming up with a great game plan and then executing that game plan. And I think we can continue to get better.”

The Cardinals will honor another electrifying playmaker from their past next month. Louisville announced it will retire Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson’s No. 8 jersey on Nov. 13 during a ceremony in a game against Syracuse.

Jackson joins Johnny Unitas as the only players in school history to have his number retired. Unitas’ No. 16 was retired in 2003.

Louisville to retire Lamar Jackson’s No. 8 jersey

Louisville will retire quarterback Lamar Jackson’s No. 8 jersey number during a ceremony at the Cardinals’ home game against Syracuse on Nov. 13.

Jackson will join fellow quarterback Johnny Unitas as the lone Louisville players to have their numbers retired. Unitas’ No. 16 was retired by the school in 2003.

Louisville surprised Jackson by informing him of the school’s decision with a video announcement on Friday.

“I (thought) I was gonna come down here and do an interview,” Jackson said after hearing the news. “(I thought) I’m comin’ down here to talk to my people from the ‘Ville. That was dope, man. That was crazy.

“I feel like I won the Heisman again.”

Jackson became the youngest player to win the Heisman Trophy in 2016. He also was a finalist for the award the following year.

In his three years with the Cardinals, Jackson passed for 9,043 yards and 69 touchdowns while adding 4,132 yards and 50 scores on the ground.

Jackson was selected by the Baltimore Ravens with the 32nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He went on to win the NFL’s MVP award after his second season.

“Lamar earned the Heisman and then the NFL MVP, and he’s not even 25 years old,” said Vince Tyra, Louisville vice president/director of athletics. “Even more remarkable, he’s only getting better. He was born shortly before Tom Brady entered the league so has the time to go beyond anything we’ve seen before. His humble heart and grounded approach endear him to his teammates, his coaches and any staff he’s ever been around. He knows it takes 11 to be successful on offense, not one. We’re so proud to retire his No. 8 for what he has accomplished so far but are equally excited about what’s to come. This city has big L’s up for our guy.”

Wide receiver Tyler Harrell and defensive lineman Henry Bryant currently wear the No. 8 for Louisville this season. They will be allowed to finish the season with that jersey number before it will be retired at the end of the year.

Virginia uses frantic comeback to nip Louisville

Brennan Armstrong’s 1-yard touchdown pass to Grant Misch with 22 seconds remaining lifted Virginia to a 34-33 comeback victory over host Louisville on Saturday.

The Cavaliers rallied from a 30-13 fourth-quarter deficit by scoring three touchdowns in the final 12:40 behind a huge performance from Armstrong, who went 40-of-60 passing for 487 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Ra’Shaun Henry had nine receptions for 179 yards for the Cavaliers (4-2, 2-2 ACC).

Armstrong’s performance overshadowed Louisville running back Hassan Hall, who rushed for 162 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. Malik Cunningham went 17-of-25 passing for 270 yards and a touchdown and Tyler Harrell had two catches for 100 yards and a touchdown for the Cardinals (3-3, 1-2).

Trailing 33-27 following a Louisville field goal, Armstrong needed just two minutes to drive the Cavaliers down the field and find Misch running across the back of the end zone to cap a 12-play, 75-yard drive.

The Cardinals had a chance to win the game, but James Turner’s 49-yard field goal as time expired sailed wide left.

After Louisville outscored Virginia 20-0 in the third quarter to take a 30-13 lead, the Cavaliers pulled to within 30-27 by scoring twice in less than a five-minute span in the fourth quarter. Keytaon Thompson scored on a 5-yard run with 12:40 left before Armstrong hit Jelani Woods for a 3-yard touchdown pass with 7:49 remaining.

The Cavaliers got the ball back on their 35-yard line with 4:24 left, but they failed to get a first down and had to punt. Louisville responded with Turner’s fourth field goal of the game, a 40-yarder, with 2:22 left.

Trailing 13-10 at halftime, Louisville opened the third quarter when Hall burst up the middle for a 52-yard touchdown run and a 17-13 lead less than three minutes into the second half.

The Cardinals pushed their lead to 20-13 on a 28-yard field goal by Turner midway through the third quarter after taking over at Virginia’s 25-yard line following an interception.

Mitchell’s 3-yard run extended the lead to 27-13 with 4:02 left in the third quarter. After Louisville got the ball back following Kendrick Duncan’s interception on Virginia’s next series,

Turner’s third field goal of the game made it 30-13 with 1:29 left in the third quarter.

Nick Sciba kicks No. 24 Wake Forest past Louisville

Nick Sciba kicked a 29-yard field goal with 22 seconds left to give No. 24 Wake Forest a 37-34 victory over Louisville on Saturday in Winston Salem, N.C.

Sciba’s field goal, his third of the game, ended an 11-play, 60-yard drive. It was Sciba’s 22nd straight successful field-goal attempt.

Sam Hartman threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to A.T. Perry with 3:52 remaining to give the Demon Deacons (5-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) a 34-27 advantage.

Louisville (3-2, 1-1) needed just 51 seconds to forge a tie as Malik Cunningham connected with Tyler Harrell for a 75-yard scoring pass.

Hartman finished 23 of 39 for 324 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. His scoring pass to Perry capped an 11-play, 75-yard drive.

Cunningham was 18 of 25 for 286 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran 14 times for 46 yards and two scores.

Louisville pulled within 27-24 when Cunningham and Ahmari Huggins-Bruce teamed on a 10-yard TD pass with 11:25 left. The Cardinals went 72 yards in six plays.

On the ensuing drive, Louisville’s Qwynnterrio Cole intercepted Hartman. That helped set up James Turner’s 46-yard field goal, which tied the score at 27.

After falling behind 17-10 following Cunningham’s 5-yard touchdown run, Wake Forest scored 17 straight points.

Justice Ellison’s 7-yard scoring run gave Wake Forest a 27-17 lead with 3:59 remaining in the third quarter. The TD culminated an 11-play, 66-yard drive.

Hartman completed 12 of 23 for 201 yards to help Wake Forest grab a 20-17 halftime lead. Receivers Jaquarii Roberson and Taylor Morin were the quarterback’s top targets.

Hartman connected with Morin on a 42-yard scoring pass play that allowed the Demon Deacons to tie the score at 17 with 3:51 left in the second quarter.

Sciba then hit a 20-yard field goal as time expired to give Wake Forest the halftime edge.
