| UCF Cavaliers vs. Louisville Cardinals
John Rees Plum Leigh’s first game with the Cavaliers was impressive as he finished five of his seven offensive touchdowns against South Carolina State. Transferred from Ole Miss last season as a Rebels catcher, Plumlee set a career high with 308 passing yards and four TD throws while also rushing for 86 yards and scoring. Senior running back Isaiah Bowser was involved in UCF’s other two offensive touchdowns and registered 109 of the club’s 600 total yards (89 rushing) in the win.
The Cavaliers had a solid last other transfer week. Junior wide receiver Javon Baker, who spent his first two years at Alabama, had five catches for 84 yards and a TD, while former Florida tight end Kemore Gamble had three passes for 82 yards and a score . On the other side of the ball, redshirt senior linebacker Walter Yates III finished with seven tackles in his UCF debut after playing for Savannah State in 2018-21.
Why Louisville can cover
Quarterback Malik Cunningham will be looking to recover from a season-opening loss in which he didn’t throw or run for a touchdown, ending his 30-game winning streak. The senior did set a school record last week by a signal caller (39) and will set another mark on Friday as he enters for the 37th straight time. Cunningham led the Cardinals to a 42-35 win over UCF last season, throwing for 265 yards and a TD while rushing for 99 yards and a pair of points.
Like the Cavaliers, Louisville saw some of their moves debut last week. Teenage running back Tyan Evans, who played in Tennessee last season, led the Cardinals’ ground offense as he finished with 13 possessions for 89 yards and touchdowns. After three years in Central Arkansas, Tyler Hudson, a junior out of junior high, became the fourth player in Louisville history to surpass the century mark in receiving yards on his team debut, with eight catches 102 yards were recorded.
