Louisville vs North Carolina, live stream 2017. Louisville vs. North Carolina: The Game Before The Big Game
This Saturday, the Louisville Cardinals will head to Chapel Hill to take on the North Carolina Tar Heels. Under normal circumstances, this might be one of the more heavily anticipated matchups of the season. A road conference game, against a Coastal team we don’t see every year, who won 8 games last year. The Cardinals will play their first true road game of the season, traveling to face the Tar Heels at Kenan Stadium for the first time since 2011 — a 14-7 loss under former head coach Charlie Strong.
Junior quarterback Lamar Jackson accounted for 485 yards of total offense and two touchdowns as the Cardinals defeated Purdue 35-28 at Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday night. The No. 17 Louisville Cardinals (1-0) open the ACC season in Chapel Hill on Saturday against the North Carolina Tar Heels (0-1). While the Cardinals come to town as double-digit favorites and led by a Heisman winner, the Heels are definitely not scared.
The season’s first great bulletin board material was provided by UNC’s Andre Smith. This week the junior linebacker said, “We definitely don’t want it to be the Lamar Jackson show… He’s not going to beat us. We’re just going to stop anything that he tries to do. The added pressure Jackson causes will balloon the rushing numbers and further exacerbate the big play mistakes in the secondary with everyone’s eyes in the backfield watching the speedy quarterback in case he takes off.
