COLLEGE PICKS: Louisville goes from main event to side stage

Lamar Jackson and No. 3 Louisville go from playing the main event last week to the side stage this week.

The Cardinals head to Marshall after jumping into the national title race by tearing up Florida State at home last week. Louisville certainly isn't the first team to play a huge game and then hit the road to play a lesser opponent, but it is not too often you see a team in a Power Five conference go from hosting GameDay to playing at a Group of Five school a week later.

Jackson and the Cardinals are talented enough to avoid a letdown, but it should be interesting to see how they respond to being the hunted in Huntington, W.Va., where a salty crowd should be revved up...
