The 6-1 Cincinnati Bearcats will travel to Louisville on Friday for a pivotal Big East showdown.
Two of the best teams in the Big East will square off on Friday night on national television, as the Cincinnati Bearcats will travel to the state of Kentucky for a game with the undefeated Louisville Cardinals.
Bearcats quarterback Munchie Legaux has been able to rack up 15 total touchdowns through six games to lead the offense, but completed only 15 of his 36 passes with a pair of interceptions in last Saturday's frustrating loss to Toledo. The 6'5 Legaux has found the endzone at least twice against every opponent he's faced this season, but could have his hands full against a stout Louisville defense.
Louisville enters Friday's contest with seven consecutive wins to open its 2012 slate, ascending all the way up to No. 16 in the latest BCS standings. Though the Cardinals have only been able to outscore their last five opponents by a total of 28 points, the offense led by sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is one of the most prolific in college football through eight weeks.
Where: Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, Louisville, KY
Game time: 8 p.m. ET
TV channel: ESPN
Spread: Cincinnati +3.5
