Louisville, it’s up to you to keep on blowing everyone out.

It’s a tough and narrow path for the Cardinals to get to the College Football Playoff, even from the No. 6 spot – but there’s just way too much traffic ahead of them depending on how the conference championships shake out.

On the plus side, they’ve got the 2016 Heisman winner, and they’ve got an offense that’s averaging 50 points per game and ripping up everything in its path.

Just when it seemed like there was reason for concern with a close call against Duke … boom. 54-13 over NC State.

Just when it seems like there was an issue with a tough battle against Virginia … boom again. 52-7 over Boston College.

Now the Cardinals have to try keeping the fun going against a slow-and-go Wake Forest team that hasn’t allowed more than 21 points since October 1st.

The Demon Deacons got the win they had to have over Virginia last week to get bowl eligible, and now it’s time to really make a mark by pulling off a shocker.

They don’t make a ton of big mistakes, and they get past an inefficient offense by owning the turnover margin, and with a nasty defense that seems to always step up at the right time.

The Cardinals will come up with a few early scores to all but end this right away – Wake Forest won’t be able to respond – but it won’t be the jaw-dropping point-a-minute UofL everyone will be looking for.
