The first of the college football polls is out for the 2017 season and Louisville checks in at No. 18.

It's almost kickoff time.

Well, not really but the first college football poll for 2017 is out and the University of Louisville checks in at No. 18. The Cardinals are in that spot on the Athlon Sports top 25.

U of L will kickoff the season on Sept. 2 in Indianapolis against Purdue.

The rankings talks about Louisville's game against Clemson on Sept. 16 in Papa John's Cardinal Stadium:

"A Week 3 showdown against Clemson is an early barometer test for Jackson and Louisville’s ACC title hopes."

Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, is on the cover of the Athlon magazine and there's also a Q&A in the magazine. He's also on the cover of Street & Smith's preseason guide.
