Louisville Cardinals Game Notes
Jack Plummer was 24-for-33 passing for 242 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during Saturday’s 38-31 defeat against Kentucky. He also had 11 rushes for 19 yards. Plummer capped off the regular season with a solid performance against their SEC rivals. However his one interception proved to be a costly one as the Cardinals fell to the Wildcats by one score in the regular season finale.
Florida State Seminoles Game Notes
Tate Rodemaker completed 12 of 25 passes for 134 yards during Saturday’s 24-15 victory over Florida. He also had five rushes for -26 yards. Rodemaker struggled in Saturday’s win as he wasn’t able to complete 50% of his passes. However, Trey Benson and the ground game were able to get it done for the Seminoles.

Louisville vs. Florida State Betting Prediction
Take Louisville. Tate Rodemaker’s status for tonight’s title game is in doubt, which means FSU could be down to third-stringer Brock Glenn, a true freshman. Let’s not overthink this: Rodemaker had a difficult time moving the ball on a bad Florida defense last week in the Swamp. How is a true freshman starting in the biggest game of his career going to fare with a trip to the college football playoffs on the line?
FSU also plays a ton of man-to-man defensively. I fully expect Jeff Brohm to dial up plenty of man-beaters tonight for Plummer. It won’t be easy, but I do see UL coming through tonight and sending FSU home with its first loss of the season.
Louisville vs. Florida State Prediction: LOUISVILLE CARDINALS +1.5
