LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – It's never too early for scoreboard watching in college football. Louisville's 32-14 victory over Kentucky Sunday at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium wasn't the only thing U of L had to celebrate – or that Kentucky had reason to fear.

Check the opening weekend performances of the teams that sit ahead on the Louisville and Kentucky schedules.

Ten of Louisville's 11 future opponents played – and five lost. (Cincinnati was idle.)

The news was not as encouraging for Kentucky. All 11 of the Wildcats' remaining opponents played. Only one lost. That was Vanderbilt, which looked good while losing to Georgia.

Kentucky's next two games certainly sit in the Must Win category – Kent State and Western Kentucky.

Louisville gets Missouri State, which lost to Kansas State, 51-9. Then comes a visit from North Carolina.

But FIU (Duke), Southern Miss (Nebraska) Pittsburgh (Youngstown State) and Syracuse (Northwestern) all opened their seasons with defeats.

The Cards still could be an underdog at Southern Miss on Sept. 29, but they should be favored in every other game.
