The Louisville Cardinals try to run their win streak to three in a row this weekend, but standing in their way are the 24th-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers as the two Big East Conference foes meet at Milan Puskar Stadium in Morgantown.
Louisville, which has a total of just three wins against other programs from the Football Bowl Subdivision so far this season, took care of the Syracuse Orange last Saturday with a 27-10 triumph following an emotional visit in the locker room pre-game by Anthony Conner who, against Rutgers a week earlier, broke his neck. With the victory, the Cardinals moved to an even 4-4 on the campaign and 2-1 in the Big East.
While still a part of the Big East, the Mountaineers locked up against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights last Saturday on a snow-covered field and pulled out a 41-31 triumph, the 17th straight win in the series for WVU. Ironically Rutgers, which led by as many as 10 points late in the first half, was led out onto the field by paralyzed Scarlet Knights player, Eric LeGrand.

Location: Milan Pusker Stadium, Morgantown, WV
