Louisville is inching closer and closer to that No. 4 spot in the College Football Playoff rankings. The loss to Clemson a few weeks back may have shut the door on any hopes the Cardinals had of making the final four, but if they can win out, anything is possible.
No. 6 Louisville is a huge favorite at home against Wake Forest on Saturday night, and it’s easy to see why. The Cardinals have the best player in the country in Lamar Jackson, and that gives them a major advantage in nearly every game they play. In case you haven’t heard yet, which would be improbable, Lamar Jackson is the most electric player in college football and the frontrunner to take home the Heisman Trophy. The sophomore quarterback is having an incredible year, passing for 2,753 yards and rushing for 1,181 with 45 total touchdowns.
Yes, the Cardinals have blown out North Carolina State and Boston College, but only after being tested by Duke and Virginia respectively. Louisville (8-1, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 6 CFP) now hosts improved Wake Forest (6-3, 3-2), which looks to beat a ranked opponent a week after becoming bowl eligible for the first time since 2011.
Wake Forest, which is bowl eligible for the first time since 2011, has already had a successful season by any reasonable measure. Calling for an upset in this game would not be reasonable, though. Louisville absolutely detonated Boston College, 52-7, last week, and the Eagles and Deacs have essentially the same profile, according to S&P+.
For Louisville, the story as always is about Jackson. But the Cards’ defense has been just as big a reason for their success this year. They have the No. 9 defense in the country, according to S&P+, to go along with that top-ranked offense. The only other team that can claim to be in the top 10 in both measures is Michigan. This team is the total package.
