Cardinals seeking 3rd straight Gov's Cup win

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Louisville is excited about Saturday's meeting with rival Kentucky for reasons beyond Bluegrass State supremacy.

After dominating Ohio and Eastern Kentucky by a combined margin of 93-14, the No. 7 Cardinals (2-0) expect a tougher test from the Wildcats (1-1). Louisville's defense is preparing for an up-tempo offense run by quarterbacks Maxwell Smith and Jalen Whitlow, who combined for 413 yards passing while alternating plays to help Kentucky roll up 675 yards in a 41-7 victory over Miami (Ohio).

The Cardinals' high-powered offense led by Heisman Trophy candidate quarterback Teddy Bridgewater expects more defensive resistance than in their first two games. Louisville also ready for a charged atmosphere at Commonwealth Stadium as it seeks to win a third straight Governor's Cup in a series Kentucky leads 14-11.
