Why Louisville Will Win

The Syracuse offensive line continues to be a problem.

It might have been okay against Duke last week, but overall it’s having a nightmare of a time in pass protection and isn’t doing enough for a running game that isn’t consistent.

The Cardinals might not have enough of a pass rush to matter, but this is the game to start gearing it up to be more disruptive.

On the other side, the passing game continues to be among the nation’s most efficient, with Micale Cunningham on fire throwing for close to 12 yards per try overall helped by a huge lot three weeks. Ever since the blowout loss to Clemson, the Cardinals and Cunningham have been able to bomb away.

Louisville is able to throw like Syracuse is supposed to, and can’t.

Why Syracuse Will Win

Yeah, the Syracuse offensive line is lousy. Louisville’s is every bit as bad, if not worse in some ways.

It’s not as bad in pass protection as Syracuse’s is, but it gives up way too many plays behind the line – it’s last in the nation in tackles for loss allowed – and the Orange have the ability to crank up the pressure and make big things happen in the backfield.

But that hasn’t mattered too much so far – the defense still gives up way too many points. The key will be the offensive side that finally seemed to find something on the ground, ripping up Duke for 286 yards and four scores.

The Cardinal run defense isn’t bad, but it’s not a brick wall against anyone who can get into a groove. The D has improved, but it allowed more than 200 rushing yards four times this year – and 197 to Miami.

Syracuse is 2-0 when hitting the 200-yard mark, and is 9-0 over the last two years when it gets there. But …

What’s Going To Happen

Syracuse isn’t going to run for 200 yards.

That was a whole lot of fun against Duke last week, but the Cardinals are playing just well enough to overcome a few turnovers to get the seventh win and keep the fun going.

It’s the final home game of the year for Louisville, and it’s going to be a launching pad for 2020. This first season under Scott Satterfield was great, and this game will set the bar higher.
