LOUISVILLE, Ky. - After capturing a 31-23 win over the Florida State Seminoles in their conference opener, Louisville (3-1, 1-0 ACC) is slowly but surely building more traction within the Associated Press Top 25 Poll.

While they are still unranked, the Cardinals received three votes in Week 5 of the 2021 poll for an unofficial ranking of No. 41. They first appeared in the 'receiving votes' section last week, tallying a single vote in Week 4.

Next up, Louisville will conclude their two-game road trip with a matchup against Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, N.C., who is now the No. 24 team in the country. Kickoff against the Demon Deacons is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 2 at 12:30 p.m. EST.

The preseason poll was started in 1950. A panel of 62 sports writers and broadcasters from around the country votes on the poll weekly.
