#22 UC heads to Louisville on Friday night for an 8pm start (televised by ESPN2, I believe). It's a game that UC should win if they play well, but it's also an absolutely pivotal game that UC cannot overlook since Pitt - and the potential de facto Big East Championship game - looms next Saturday.

For the most part, UC has played outstanding defense all year long, and their defense in the redzone has been crucial against both South Florida and West Virginia. Louisville is missing one of their star WR for the rest of the season which may also hopefully cut into the Louisville offensive attack a bit.

Hopefully UC doesn't catch themselves looking ahead to next Saturday, and I've got faith in Brian Kelly to make sure that doesn't happen. Play well, execute well, protect the football, and avoid the stupid penalties, and let's grab a win heading into the Pitt game.
