The University of Louisville football team’s 31-23 win over Florida State Saturday was a stomach churner. All the elements. Tense. Nail biting. Stressful. Maddening. Like two games in one, one team goes into the locker room, another comes out for the second half.
The Cardinals had their way with the Seminoles early, making it look easy, dancing their way to a 31-7 lead in the second quarter. Then the boys from the Belknap Campus held on for dear life for a 31-23 lead and a 3-1 won-lost record.
Give a shout out to UofL’s defense, which came up with a lot of important stops in the fourth quarter.
