Louisville vs Wake Forest Game Preview
Why Louisville Will Win
The offense has picked it up.
It wasn’t bad in the opener against Ole Miss, but it was too late – the Cardinals got down too quickly. QB Malik Cunningham has started to play a whole lot better – he’s been consistent – the running game was able to roll through UCF, and everything clicked to stay ahead of Florida State.

Why Wake Forest Will Win
Wake Forest has been air tight.
Very, very quietly on a national scale, it’s doing everything right by dominating the turnover margin, loading up the defensive production allowing only 14 points per game, and there aren’t enough penalties to matter.
The D is disrupting everything, and the O has been tremendously balanced.
Florida State was desperate to come up with a good performance – that was over quickly in a 35-14 loss.

What’s Going To Happen
There’s a shot this is a whole lot of fun if Cunningham is able to be sharp and the offensive line can keep the Demon Deacons from taking over.
Wake Forest will score whenever it gets a few chances, and Louisville won’t. Wake Forest will avoid the big turnovers and mistakes, and Louisville won’t.
