U of L Moves Up In College Football Polls

The University of Louisville football team has risen two places in the latest Associated Press national rankings.

The Cards are 23rd in this week’s poll, up from 25th going into their season opener against Kentucky.    U of L is 24thin the latest USA Today/coaches poll after being unranked last week.

Coach Charlie Strong is generally pleased with his team’s play in Sunday’s 32-14 win over UK, but says no one has forgotten last season, when the Cards returned home after a big win in Lexington and were dealt the first of three consecutive losses.

"We cannot allow that to happen and we’re at home.  So now you have an opponent come in, so you like to think that now we’ve been through that, hoping that we won’t have to go through it again," Strong said.

Louisville faces unranked Missouri State next Saturday.

Kentucky also returns to action Saturday, hosting Kent State.   Indiana is on the road at Massachusetts after opening the season with a win over Indiana State.

Rick Howlett was midday host and the host of LPM's weekly talk show, "In Conversation." He was with LPM from 2001-2023 and held many different titles, including Morning Edition host, Assignment Editor and Interim News Director. He died in August 2023. Read a remembrance of Rick here.
