The University of Louisville has some talent on the roster but the Cardinals still have some questions heading into Saturday's 3:30 p.m. opener against Auburn in the Georgia Dome.

The Cardinals are still without a starting quarterback as Reggie Bonnafon, Will Gardner, Kyle Bolin and Lamar Jackson all have battled throughout fall camp for the starting position. U of L coach Bobby Petrino said he won't make a decision public until Saturday.

U of L also still has competition going on in practice this week at the offensive line. Petrino said 11 guys are still battling and rotating in at the five line spots, including Pedro Sibiea Tobijah Hughley and T.C. Klusman at center.

Senior Aaron Epps is expected to be the right tackle and is the lone veteran on the line.

The Cardinals also still have questions on special teams with a new punter - Joshua Appleby - and long snapper - Colin Holba. But they do return All-American kicker John Wallace and there will be no questions about the defense, which is expected to be strong.
