The University of Louisville football team takes on West Virginia tomorrow at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

The 5-5 Cards need a victory to become bowl eligible and coach Steve Kragthorpe believes his team must notch another win on December 4 at Rutgers to secure a bid.

“If we don’t then it becomes a very subjective situation again. So we want to take the subjectivity out of it, win the last two games and play a 13th,” Kragthorpe said.

Last year the Cards finished the regular season with a 6 and 6 record but did not receive a bowl bid.

Saturday’s contest is the final home game for 22 U of L seniors, including quarterback Hunter Cantwell. Kickoff is at noon.
