The Louisville Cardinals played a tight game against the Duke Blue Devils in a Black-Out Friday night at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
The Cards came away with a 24-14 victory that was achieved in what seemed like slow motion. Duke kept to their plan of milking every possible second off the clock and taking chances on third down with quick screen passes. For the most part, it worked, putting the Blue Devils in 16 third down situations.
Louisville had nearly twice as many yards as Duke, finishing with 469. Lamar Jackson threw for 181 yards and a touchdown, and ran for an additional 144 yards and a score. However, Jackson was on the sideline for most of the game due to the Blue Devils game plan of controlling the clock. Duke held possession for 15 more minutes than Louisville in a 60 minute game.
