Louisville may have watched its chances of winning the ACC Atlantic Division dashed with its first loss two weeks ago, but the coast appears to be clear for the team to keep itself in the running. After a week off to stew about their close encounter, the seventh-ranked Cardinals look to show off their explosive offense yet again Friday when they host Duke in only the second meeting between the schools.

The deck might be stacked against the Blue Devils as leading rusher Jela Duncan and starting center Austin Davis departed early with leg injuries and did not return against Army, and both are listed questionable for Friday. Despite being limited to 7-of-15 passing for 41 yards because of wind and rain last weekend, Daniel Jones still leads all freshmen nationally in pass completions (132) while ranking second among rookies in passing yards (1,455) and total offensive yards (1,634). Safety Deondre Singleton earned ACC Defensive Back of the Week honors for his efforts against the Black Knights after recording five tackles – one for loss, an interception, a fumble recovery and pass breakup.

Heisman Trophy frontrunner Lamar Jackson failed to account for at least five touchdowns for the first time this season against Clemson but still accumulated 457 total yards as the sophomore signal-caller ranks second in the country in total yardage (462.6) and leads the nation in rushing touchdowns (14). Quick is third in the conference with a team-high 443 yards (19.3 yards per catch), although tight end Cole Hikutini has stepped up with 11 receptions for 169 yards and two scores over his last two games, including a career-high seven grabs for 84 yards versus the Tigers. Linebacker James Hearns, who leads the team with 4.5 sacks, is tied for the FBS lead with four forced fumbles.

  Louisville tries for its 500th victory in school history.

 Duke opponents are 0-for-8 on fourth-down tries after Army went 0-for-4.

The Cardinals picked off a season-high three passes against Clemson, giving them a FBS-best 49 interceptions since 2014.
