The current wagering odds from this week eleven college football contest has the road side Louisville Cardinals favored by -28 points with an over under line set at 49 points.
The Louisville Cardinals hopes for a BCS Title game went up in flames as the team drops a 38-35 home decision three weeks ago to the Central Florida Knights. Heading into this contest with Connecticut there is really no reason to pile up points in this spot so Louisville purely plays for a conference championship at the current time and with the loss to Central Florida that may not be possible. The Cardinal has not been a particularly good running team on the current season. It has been a poor season for the Connecticut Huskies as the team enters play with a record of 0-7 on the year and eliminated from a bowl. This game pretty much is a bowl game for the Huskies as its over national television on a Friday night. The last time the Huskies were featured on a high impact nationally televised game they gave a good effort in a 24-21 home defeat to the Michigan Wolverines as a +18 ½ point underdog. The Huskies are rated in the top half of college football defending the pass as the team surrenders just 226 yards per game and sit in the middle of college football as they allow 399 yards per game to their opponents. Connecticut will be coming off a bye week for this game. Expect Connecticut to come in with a ball control strategy here as they try and keep Teddy Bridgewater and his Louisville Cardinals team off the field. They Huskies have a junior running back in Lyle McCombs who has rushed for a 4.7 yards per carry average and four touchdowns so he could be an important piece to keep the chains moving and the clock running to cover this four touchdowns on the side of the Connecticut Huskies.
