Louisville vs Syracuse Preview

The Louisville Cardinals are the favorites heading into their season opener with the Syracuse Orange, but only by 4.5 points, so look for this one to come down to the wire.

In his pre-game press conference (via GoCards), Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield said that they know this is going to be a tough matchup.

“We know the ACC is a big-time challenge, week in and week out,” said Satterfield. “We have arguably one of the toughest schedules in the history of Louisville football when you think about all the teams that are ranked, when you talk about starting out on the road in the first two weeks with a short week, and you think about Central Florida and then coming right back here playing Florida State.”

He added, “We’ve played Syracuse three times here in a row at home, and at the end of the season, so now it’s completely different, it’s the first game, it’s in their place. I know it’s going to be loud, and just a nasty environment. It’s going to be a big challenge, we’re looking forward to it, and we’re excited about it.”

The Cardinals are 3-0 all time against the Orange since Satterfield took over as head coach.

In his own press conference, Syracuse head coach Dino Babers said that if they lose to Louisville, that will be a “heavier weight” than losing a non-conference game.

“This will be a rare opportunity for us starting with a conference game. It’s unusual and we’re excited about that. We’re also excited to be back at home after last year opening up on the road,” said Babers, adding, “Go down 0-1 in conference, that’s a heavier weight than just losing a football game. So that’s the big difference. A conference game. Thank you, ACC, we can’t wait.”

“We’re excited to be back home after last year opening up on the road, getting an opportunity to open up here with the fans and the student body. I think the team is excited based on a couple of practices we had. We still have a week to finish up the process of getting ready for Lousiville. But Coach Satterifeld and that football team is a doggone good football team, they’re well coached, and we know that it’s going to be a very, very tough game,” said Babers.

The Louisville at Syracuse game kicks off Saturday, September 3 at 8 p.m. Eastern on the ACC Network.
