The new season is here!
Coming off an overall record of 6-7 last season (4-4 in the ACC), the Louisville soccer team hopes to start 2022 with a win over Syracuse (5-7, 2-6).
The Cardinals have had two straight seasons with a losing record, but head coach Scott Satterfield hopes to turn things around in his fourth season. That certainly could happen with one of the best quarterbacks in the conference in Malik Cunningham.
Going into its matchup with Syracuse, Louisville is a 5.5-point favorite. Prior to this game, the two schools have only met in September three times. The last time they met, Lamar Jackson led Louisville to a 62-24 win over Orange.
Louisville’s other September victory over the Orange was 30-20 on September 13, 2003 on the road, while Syracuse beat the Cardinals 38-35 on September 22, 2007 in Louisville.
