Louisville Rushing Offense
The Cardinal Rushing attack was back and forth throughout the 2014 season. The Cards gained over 200+ yards twice, over 150+ yards six times, and was held under 100 yards on 4 occasions. It was an oddball rushing year for the Cards who started out the season riding Dominique Brown as the primary ball carrier, losing Corvin Lamb due to injury versus Clemson, waiting on Michael Dyer for half the season, and watched Brandon Radcliff emerge as the bell cow.
Now with Dyer out for the Bowl game the Cards will focus on Brandon Radcliff, Dominique Brown, and LJ Scott as the primary ball carriers for UofL.
Louisville faced FIVE Rushing Defenses in the Top 50 in 2014. Georgia’s 175.58 yards allowed per game is 77th and will just be tied for the 9th best (of 12) Rushing Defense UofL will play. UofL gained about 14 yards fewer than what opponents usually allowed in 2014 and the stat suggest that the Cards will gain 161-162 yards on the ground in Charlotte.

Georgia Rushing Defense
UGA’s 77th ranked rushing defense struggled in the latter half of the season, giving up 418 yards to Florida and 399 yards to Georgia Tech. The Bulldogs faced four Top 50 rushing offenses in 2014, Louisville will be the 9th best rushing attack Georgia will see in 2014.
Based on the Cardinals 149.42 yards per game on the ground the suggestion is that UofL will gain 129-135 which is much lower than what above suggestion.
