The Crowd

“The Crowd” projects a final score of Louisville 46.1 – Wake Forest 20.7 with an over/under of 66.8.

2016-17 Statistics (127 total teams):

Passing offense: Louisville 331.9 YPG > Wake Forest 167.4 YPG

Rushing offense: Louisville 261.6 YPG > Wake Forest 164.0 YPG

Scoring offense: Louisville 50.2 PPG > Wake Forest 21.3 PPG

Scoring defense: Wake Forest 18.4 PPG > Louisville 21.2 PPG

Passing defense: Louisville 187.1 YPG > Wake Forest 238.8 YPG

Rushing defense: Louisville 106.0 YPG > Wake Forest 130.9

Turnover Margin Per Game: Wake Forest +1.2 > Louisville -0.1

Strength of schedule:

Louisville is (8-1) with wins over Boston College, Charlotte, Syracuse, Florida State, Marshall, Duke, NC State, and Virginia.  Their only loss came against a top five team in Clemson.  Wake Forest is (6-3) with wins over Tulane, Duke, Delaware, Indiana, Syracuse, and Virginia.  They were defeated by NC State, Florida State, and Army.

Summary:

The Louisville offense keeps on rolling leading the nation in yards per game and scoring offense at over 50 points per game.  Quarterback Lamar Jackson continues his dominance as the clear frontrunner to win the 2016 Heisman Trophy Award.  All the attention goes to the Louisville offense but their defense also ranks as a top 25 unit.  This game appears to be a huge mismatch because Wake Forest has only exceeded 30 points once this season.  Louisville has scored over 30 points in eight of their nine games this season.  Wake Forest ranks outside the top 100 in scoring offense and simply won’t be able to keep up with the highest scoring team in college football.  I like Louisville to win by a huge margin at home.
