LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville's seniors have a simple reason for wanting to win Saturday's home finale over Connecticut.
It hasn't been done in a while.
A victory would be the seniors' first in three tries under coach Charlie Strong. The No. 19 Cardinals (9-1, 4-1 Big East) can also achieve double-digit victories for the fourth time in school history, all since 2001.
Staying within reach of league-leading Rutgers entering next Friday's showdown in New Jersey adds more motivation for one of the nation's smallest senior classes. Louisville has 13 overall and just 10 on scholarship, and half of them began their careers as walk-ons.
Since going 4-8 as freshmen they've had three straight winning seasons and seek the school's second BCS bowl bid along with a successful home send-off.
