Opening Statement: London opens up says that the Cardinals are a very talented group. He praises the wide receiver core, and points out that it seems like the quarterback situation is figuring itself out over there. He adds that the team presents a challenge with the speed and the athleticism of the defense saying Louisville's linebacker group is very good. 

Louisville's Offense: "Very athletic and long...receivers that can go up and get it"  London adds the Cards have a very productive offense and an offense they are very familiar with from last season. London says the Cavs have to play their best football because Louisville is playing their best football now. "We expect all three of the quarterbacks to play to their strengths." He adds that they have been doing a good job playing more efficiently with the guys they have. 

Pre-Snap Penalties: "You just have to wire in and focused in." London says they can do a few things, like work on hard count and try to simulate crowd noise. 

Cards' Rushing Defense: London says they are tough to run against because of the talent at linebacker. "They do a good job of filling the holes and running down running backs... they are very active," said London.
