Alabama Football Impact Players

Breaking down Louisville’s marquee stars for meeting with Tide

Jamie Rhodes- USA TODAY Sports

Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino and his team have done much chatting this offseason on how they will dominate Alabama to open the college football year.

Camping World Stadium (Orlando, Fla.) should be electrifying on Saturday, as the Crimson Tide and Cardinals face off. 

While it lost Lamar Jackson to the National Football League, Louisville is hopeful that sophomore Jawon Pass can create momentum at quarterback.

The Cardinals are rich at receiver, but lack depth and experience on defense. Its offensive line has showed little to be desired, especially after seeing Jackson (2016 Heisman winner) run for his life in the last three seasons. 

Can its offensive line hold up? Will its defense create turnovers?

These are both questions Louisville must answer strongly. All in all, it should be an interesting matchup for both teams.  

After listing the impact players for Alabama, yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine broke down the stars for the Cardinals via podcast on In My Own Words. For the best in Alabama football commentary, be sure to subscribe to TDAM’s YouTube page and its website.
