UofL FOOTBALL | Louisville's secondary looks better than expected

09/11/2015 11:00 AM

LOUISVILLE – Coming into the opening game last week, all the defensive hype was on Louisville’s front seven. There was still uncertainty surrounding the secondary after Head Coach Bobby Petrino worked the word “or” into the depth chart a few times. But after last Saturday’s three interception performance, any doubt was quelled about the skill level of the Card’s defensive backfield. In fact if it were not for a second half dropped interception by sophomore safety Chucky Williams, Louisville would have left Atlanta with four picks and potentially a W.

Despite collecting a few turnovers, the Louisville Secondary feels they have room to improve, and Chucky says he is not dwelling on his dropped interception, he is learning from it.

The secondary will definitely need to be sharp when it comes to containing Houston’s dual threat quarterback. cn2 Sports’ Tony Rawlings explains how strong the chemistry is among UofL’s defensive backs, and the steps they are taking as they prepare for the Bulldogs.
