According to U of L football sports information director Rocco Gasparro, U of L traveled with only 25 defensive players tonight because of injuries.
In addition to players already announced as injured, defensive lineman Aundre Henderson, linebacker Terrance Butler and cornerback Travis Norton also are missing tonight’s game with injuries.
What it amounts to is this: U of L will try to slow one of the nation’s most explosive offenses
with four down linemen and three linebackers expected to play almost the whole way. Darius Mann is the lone healthy backup linebacker with experience.
That’s not a good recipe for U of L success, but would make this some kind of story if the Cards were able to pull this out.
