The offense for Louisville is coming in with a total of 7 starters on the year. The Cardinals, though, are ranked in the top 10 in the ACC, but that is out of a limited number of teams that in the ACC. On the bright side Malik Cunningham is coming back to start for Louisville.
Defensively the Louisville team is bringing back only 5 starters on the year. The Cardinals have ended up with the top rated defensive backfield in the ACC last year, but now the Cardinals only bring back only a single starter in that position and that could lead to problems.
The Rebels are bringing back 8 starters on the offense. The Rebels offense last year had the top ranked yards per game in the SEC for total yardage, but also were the top rated rushing team in the SEC. Nationally all the major offensive stats Ole Miss was ranked the lowest in the top 25.
The problem for Ole Miss with the powerful offense is it was unable to really balance out from the lack of defense. The Rebels defensively were not ranked in the top 100 for any of the stats and that can make it very difficult to see Ole Miss do much in the way of winning.
