Week 1 of the Top 25 NCAA football schedule concludes today with the Miami vs. Louisville live stream and TV coverage courtesy of ESPN. When these two teams met back in December it was an ugly game for the 'Canes.
According to an ESPN report on Sept. 1, the last time these two teams hit the field was nine months ago in the Russell Athletic Bowl back in December. If you are a Louisville fan the results were great, if you are a fan of the "U," it was a game to forget. The Cardinals rolled to a 36-9 win and are hoping for similar results in their home opener tonight.
Not only is this the first game of the 2014 schedule for the Cards, it is also Louisville's debut in the ACC Conference. Just because they routed Miami the last time they met, Louisville's Lorenzo Mauldin wants to make sure his squad has the same results once again when they hit the field tonight.
“Our practices have been more electric,” Mauldin said. “Everybody just wants to beat Miami.”
Louisville may have a good shot at defeating the Canes for the second straight time as Miami will be starting true Freshman Brad Kaaya. CBS reports Kaaya, an 18-year-old newbie beat out senior transfer Jake Heaps for the starting job during the Canes' training camp. Kaaya will be the first true freshman to start at quarterback since Jacory Harris in 2008. Talk about a baptism by fire!
Las Vegas odds makers have Louisville listed as a 3 point favorite with the over/under number listed at 55. Fans can catch all of the action on ESPN nationally and streaming live on Watch ESPN. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. EST.
