FSU football has lost the last two contests against the Louisville Cardinals. You may ask why the Louisville game appears this high on the list?
It’s simple, FSU must get off to a fast start in the 2022 season, and the Lousiville game is pivotal for a few reasons.
FSU travels to Louisville for a night game after playing LSU in week two. If FSU defeats LSU, a win over Louisville would send this fan base into a frenzy because they know this team would have a legitimate shot at winning eight or nine games.
It would be a potential 3-0 start to the season for the first time in a while and help change the national perception of the program.
A loss against LSU could be softened by a win over Louisville and keep their chances of winning eight games alive.
It would avoid a potential 1-2 start, and help the coaching staff continue to sell the message of moving in the right direction.
A potential 1-2 start to the season would make it incredibly difficult to continue to sell that message on the recruiting trail.
