College football


Published October 22, 2004

Louisville's 41-38 loss to Miami last week was impressive enough that the Cardinals moved up three spots to No. 15 in the Associated Press Top 25, the school's highest ranking since 1993. USF is 1-3 against ranked Division I-A teams, with the lone win 29-7 against then-No. 25 Bowling Green in 2002. Speaking of rankings, USF falls anywhere from 72nd to 98th in the six computer rankings used in the BCS. Look for USF (2-3, 1-2 C-USA) to rely heavily on junior running back Andre Hall, who rushed for 200 yards and two touchdowns in less than three quarters Saturday before he was sidelined with a strained neck. The Cardinals (4-1, 2-0) have rushed for at least 200 yards in all five games. Louisville's top receiver is J.R. Russell, a Gaither graduate who has 29 catches for 295 yards. Bulls running back Andre Copeland, a freshman from Lake City, might be headed for a medical redshirt. He has not played since the second game of the season. Senior defensive tackle Lee Roy Selmon Jr., who had minor arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Wednesday, did not travel with the team. USF hopes he will return Nov.3 at Alabama-Birmingham. Cedric Battles will start in his place. Trae Williams of Durant makes consecutive starts at cornerback, and sophomore John Miller will start at right guard.
