LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The University of Louisville football team continues its climb up the polls. The Cardinals (7-1, 5-0 C-USA) climbed to eighth in the Associated Press Poll and 11th in the ESPN/USA Today Poll, the highest ranking in school history.

Louisville moved up four spots in the AP this week and three in the Coaches Poll after an impressive 55-28 win over TCU last Wednesday night at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. Louisville is just the third Conference USA school to reach the top ten, joining TCU at #9 last season and Tulane, who was 7th in 1998.

"It's great for our program and a credit to our players to be in the Top 10," said head coach Bobby Petrino.  "Our staff and players have put in a great of hard work and effort, and there are many things we still hope to accomplish. We have three games remaining and we're going to play them one at a time and see what happens. But this is a great day for the University of Louisville's football program."

The Cardinals return to action on Saturday, November 20 against Houston. The game can be seen live in Louisville on WDRB at 5:00 EST.
