Louisville Football: By the Numbers
1,813 - Louisville's last win against Pittsburgh will be 1,813 days ago when kickoff happens Saturday. The Cardinals' last win against the Panthers was on Oct. 27, 2007. Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was 14 years old the last time UofL beat the Panthers.
18 - The first BCS ranking estimates were released Sunday on CBS, and Louisville is No. 18 according to the convoluted formula that includes a team's ranking in both the coaches' poll and Harris poll, plus a composite of computer rankings. The Cardinals are No. 18 in both the coaches and Harris polls and No. 25 in the composite computer rankings.
3 - Louisville is the top-ranked team in the BCS standings from the Big East, but Rutgers (5-0) and Cincinnati (4-0) aren't far behind. Rutgers is No. 19 and Cincinnati No. 20. Future league member Boise State (4-1) is No. 22. Former member West Virginia (5-0) is No. 6 and TCU (4-1), a team slated to join the Big East before bolting to the Big 12, is No. 25.
4 - Sophomore safety Calvin Pryor is No. 1 in the nation in fumble recoveries with four. The Cardinals have six fumble recoveries as a team. Pryor leads UofL in tackles with 38 and had eight tackles, including one for a loss, during Louisville's 21-17 victory at Southern Miss on Sept. 29.

0 - Of 17 team categories listed on NCAA.org, Louisville doesn't lead the Big East in any of them. The Cardinals are second in the league in passing efficiency (to Pittsburgh) and second in scoring offense (to Cincinnati).
8 - UofL is last (eighth) in the league in sacks and tackles for a loss. The Cardinals have only five sacks in five games, ranking 104th in the nation. They are even worse in tackles for a loss with 3.8 per game, 117th in the nation. Connecticut leads the Big East with 7.67 per game.
31 - Pitt, Louisville's next opponent, is No. 31 in the nation in total offense with 458.6 yards per game. The Panthers are 22nd in passing offense (303.2 ypg) and 72nd in rushing offense (155.4 ypg). Only Cincinnati (463.75 ypg) gains more yards per game.
