10- Louisville Cardinals:

Coach: Charlie Strong

2012 Record: Overall 11-2   Big East (5-2)

 

The Louisville Cardinals are one of the most exciting teams to watch in all of college football. Head coach Charlie Strong has done a tremendous job leading the team. Last year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was nothing short of electric. Bridgewater returns with running back Dominique Brown and wide receiver Damian Copeland, and the three of them will comprise one of college footballs best trio’s in 2013. Bridgewater is also a sure fire Heisman candidate, and might be the best quarterback in college football.

Defensively the Cardinals return 9 starters from last years Big East Championship squad. Louisville should have the best defense in the American Athletic Conference. Defensive tackle Bandon Dunn and linebacker Preston Brown will be household names by seasons end.

2013 Outlook: The Louisville Cardinals might be starting the season as our number ten team, but I would not be shocked at all to see this team playing for The BCS Championship. Their schedule is very favorable, and there will not be a conference championship game to hurdle. At worst, I expect Louisville to lose one game during the regular season.
