No. 8 Cardinals have short week before 2nd game

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville coach Charlie Strong believes a short week of preparation will help his No. 8 Cardinals maintain their focus with another winnable game looming.
The Cardinals host Eastern Kentucky Saturday after their season-opening 49-7 rout Sunday of Ohio.
Strong also knows that eight FCS schools pulled off upsets last weekend, so his players can't look past a Colonels squad coming off its own dominant win against Robert Morris.
EKU has knocked off the Cardinals before, beating Louisville 45-21 in 1985 for its last triumph against a top-tier program.
While that Louisville loss was a generation ago and the Cardinals lead the series 17-8-1 with back-to-back victories, Strong is stressing the importance of taking every opponent seriously and notes that the Cardinals have room for improvement despite rolling over Ohio.
