OUR PREDICTION: It's a virtual lock that Lamar Jackson and the Cardinals will rebound from their loss to Clemson last week and beat the Golden Flashes today. That said, I'm not pumped about laying 44 points on a team that could come out flat and disinterested. Given all the hype, all the pomp and circumstance, and all the focus that went into last weekend's matchup versus Clemson, I don't expect Louisville to look sharp throughout today. I could see one of two things happening: Either Louisville comes out flat, or the Cardinals build a decent lead and cost throughout. Either way, I'm taking the points despite Kent State being overmatched.
