Cardinal Authority has checked in with some of the local media members for a prediction on Saturday's Louisville-Auburn football game.
The game will kick off at 3:30 p.m. in the Georgia Dome.
Here are the picks:
Jody Demling, Cardinal Authority
Louisville 24, Auburn 21: John Wallace wins it for Louisville as CardNation celebrates again in the Georgia Dome.
Eric Carwford, WDRB.com
Auburn 14, Louisville 10: Cards 'D' is legit, but offense isn't enough.
Kent Taylor, WAVE-3
Louisville 31, Auburn 28: John Wallace game-winning field goal; Bonnafon accounts for 300 yards.
Fred Cowgill, WLKY-32
Auburn 31, Louisville 28: Cards play their brains out but just miss.
Rick Bozich, WBRD.com
Auburn 27, Louisville 17: Cards' offensive line might be ready for test on October but not on the first Saturday in September.
Tim Sullivan, Courier-Journal
Auburn 27, Louisville 23: Just don't ask me to pick the quarterback.
Kent Spencer, WHAS-11
Auburn 31, Louisville 24: The Cards' offensive line will eventually be good, but it won't be in game one.
Whitney Harding, WHAS-11
Auburn 28, Louisville 21: I think the fourth quarter will be the difference and the up-tempo offense will prevail. U of L defense will control the first half.
John Lewis, WRDB-41
Auburn 25, Louisville 14: The Cards may sill be a work in progress offensively and defensively. That's difficult when taking on a team with national championship aspirations right out of the gate.
Steve Jones, Courier-Journal:
Auburn 31, Louisville 23: Cards' really strong defense will keep them in it till final minutes, but too many question marks on offense to know if U of L can score quite enough to pull the upset.
Mark Blankebaker, TheCrunchZone.com
Louisville 38, Auburn 33: Louisville's defense sets the tone with a high number of turnovers. Cards will turn it over less, and U of L's defense will bail out the Cards in tough spots.
Dave Jennings, 790-WKRD
Auburn 31, Louisville 20: I think we will see flashes of what's to come in Bobby Year 2, but the unsettled o-line and Auburn's likely improved 'D' will make this an uneven effort for the Cards in week one.
