What you need to know about Louisville

QB Malik Cunningham put forth a good effort for the losing side as he passed for one TD and 118 yards on 19 attempts, in addition to picking up 49 yards on the ground. 

After looking like more of a running quarterback early in his career, Cunningham continues to develop as a pocket passer and he’s been less likely to flee the tackle box in 2020. Cunningham has completed 62.2 percent of his passes for 1,118 yards and 10 touchdowns with five interceptions this year. He’s only rushed for 133 yards so far in 2020, but he has scored three rushing touchdowns, bringing his career total to 14 and giving the Florida State defense and added layer of complexity in the red zone.
