Strength of schedule:

Louisville is (6-1) with wins over Charlotte, Syracuse, Florida State, Marshall, NC State, and Duke.  Their lone defeat was a six-point loss to a top ten team in Clemson.  Virginia is (2-5) with wins over Central Michigan and Duke.  They were beaten by Oregon, Richmond, Connecticut, Pittsburgh, and North Carolina.

Summary:

Louisville keeps on rolling as they demolished NC State at home last week.  This game looks pretty lopsided on paper as Louisville has the advantage in virtually every statistical category.  Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson is the frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy and leads the most potent offensive attack in the country.  The Louisville defense doesn’t get much love, but they rank as a top 40 unit in college football.  This should be another Louisville blowout again topping the 50-point plateau.
