Louisville Cardinals (10-1) at Cincinnati Bearcats (9-2)

The Keg of Nails will not be for a conference crown, or a trip to the BCS. Both goals are out of reach for Cincinnati, and out of the control of Louisville. But it is for a Keg of Nails and eternal bragging rights in a 53 game series that doesn't seem to have a future after this season.

Keg of Keys To A Bearcat Victory Tonight

The Bearcats and Cardinals will enter Nippert as two of the three best teams in the AAC, and the result won't change that broad strokes evaluation, but it could change the order a bit. But they come in with subtle variations in trend.

Louisville Cardinals Statistical Profile

The Louisville Cardinals are good. In and of itself this is no revelation at all, it is exceedingly difficult to win 10 games without being generally good to great in most aspects of the game.
