SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Charlie Strong wants his Louisville Cardinals to enter the Carrier Dome with a big chip on their shoulders to play Syracuse.
Shouldn't be a problem.
Despite being only one of only six unbeaten teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision, Louisville (9-0, 4-0 Big East) is ranked 11th in the AP rankings and ninth in the latest BCS standings. The Cardinals trail Georgia and Florida, who each have one loss, and LSU and South Carolina, with two losses apiece.
The Cardinals have quietly made a strong statement behind quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and will present all sorts of problems for the Orange (4-5, 3-2).
It's a huge game for Syracuse, which has to win two of its final three games to achieve the six wins needed to play in a bowl game.
It's also Senior Day for a core group of players who have been key to helping coach Doug Marrone turn around a program that was a laughingstock not so long ago.
