Louisville has started three different quarterbacks in the first three games, so who gets the start this weekend

University of Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino won't announce his starting quarterback for Saturday's Samford game until just before the game on Saturday at 6 o'clock. The Cardinals have started three different quarterbacks in the first three weeks of the season.

The Quarterback Carousel continues for the University of Louisville football team. And there's a good chance it could stop on a different name for the fourth week in a row for the Cardinals.

Sophomore Reggie Bonnafon started the opener against Auburn and was relieved by true freshman Lamar Jackson. It was Jackson who started the Houston game in week two and was replaced by sophomore Kyle Bolin.

Against Clemson last week, it was Bolin who started and Jackson came in for several plays.

"Nobody has separated themselves," U of L coach Bobby Petrino said this week of the quarterbacks.

The U of L depth chart lists Jackson (or) Bolin as the starter this week, while Jackson has been Tweeting like he could be the starter when the Cardinals play host to Samford on Saturday at 6 p.m.

Petrino said he won't publicly name a starter prior to the game.

"Lamar is a guy who is a tremendous athlete, very talented and has a real strong arm," Petrino said on the ACC teleconference. "He can throw the ball down the field, can get it out of his hand quick, and he probably has the quickest release of any quarterback that we have.

"Kyle has just been a guy who's been able to execute and make good decisions and move the football by distributing it around. Unfortunately, the decision-making when you're struggling on the offensive line, you don't get to take the time that you really need."

The Cardinals have started a different quaretrback five games in a row, dating back to last season.
