UofL ATHLETICS | Cards Football, Men's Basketball Making Plenty of Headlines

07/26/2017 02:18 PM

The Louisville football team is getting closer and closer to holding its first fall practice.

The Cards will hit the practice field for the first time on Monday.

They learned recently that they have 10/1 odds to make the College Football Playoff, according to Bovada. The team with the best chance to make the College Football Playoff is Alabama, which has 2/5 odds.

Florida St. and USC each have 7/5 odds, while Ohio St. has 3/2 odds.

ESPN 680 host Jason Anderson joined Sports Night on Wednesday to discuss UofL’s odds for making the College Football Playoff:

Also on Sports Night, Anderson and Chernoff discussed when fans should know if UofL football is “for real” or “not for real” this season:

In addition to talking Louisville football, Anderson also spoke with Chernoff about the recent news surrounding UofL and the KFC Yum! Center.

Last week, the University of Louisville Board of Trustees, UofL Athletic Association Board and Louisville Arena Authority each approved a new lease agreement between the school and the KFC Yum! Center.

Chernoff also asked Anderson about Louisville men’s basketball’s recruiting efforts of Class of 2018 prospect Romeo Langford. The highly-sought after recruit sat out this past weekend’s “All-In Hoopfest” in Louisville, nursing a sore hip.
