Louisville Cardinals Game Notes

Coach Scott Satterfield was optimistic coming into the season with 17 starters back, including 10 from a defense that registered 33 sacks and intercepted 10 passes last season. The Cardinals sacked Shrader twice but registered zero turnovers. Cunningham played a huge role on offense last year, throwing for 2,841 of his 3,872 yards from scrimmage and rushing for 20 of his 39 touchdowns. He has to recapture that magic touch.

UCF Knights Game Notes

A stellar defensive effort by the Knights limited the Bulldogs to just 91 yards of total offense. That mark is tied for No. 1 nationally with Minnesota for the fewest yards allowed in a game this season. UCF allowed just 35 rushing yards and 56 yards passing. Additionally, the 56 passing yards allowed rank fourth in the NCAA and the 35 rushing yards allowed ranks 10th nationally.
