Cards Stand Strong In Polls

Posted Nov 28, 2004

Despite it's 70-7 victory over Cincinnati on Saturday, the Louisville Cardinals were unable to improve on their rankings of a week ago as no program above them lost.

Louisville remained No. 7 and No. 8 in the AP and Coaches Top 25 polls respectively this week.

The Cardinals, now 9-1 (6-0), have one remaining game this season, a December 4th contest at Tulane. The game against the Green Wave will be the Cardinals last regular season game as a member of Conference USA.
