Gameday Open Thread/Live Blog: Seminoles @ Cardinals | Game 6


LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Louisville returns home for the first time in over a month this Saturday to take on the Florida State Seminoles.

Despite giving up only 338 yards of offense, the Cardinals fell at No. 4 Notre Dame 12-7. The seven points allowed were the lowest the Cardinals have given up to a Power 5 opponent in the Scott Satterfield era.

FSU’s win over the No. 5 North Carolina marked the first victory in Doak Campbell Stadium for an unranked Florida State team over a top-five opponent since Oct. 16, 1965, when FSU defeated No. 5 Georgia 10-3.
