LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- No. 19 Louisville is facing a different kind of opponent in its opener against upstart Charlotte after recently kicking off the season with the likes of Miami and Auburn.The Cardinals are 40-point favorites in Thursday nights matchup against the 49ers, who begin their second season of FBS play trying to end a 10-game losing streak. Thats asking a lot of Charlotte, which will face its first ranked foe. Add in that Louisville returns several players from a squad that won eight of its final 10 games, including the Music City Bowl.Louisville began the season 0-3, its worst opening since 1984 and players are determined to start better this season. With consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference games against Syracuse and No. 4 Florida State the next two weeks, the Cardinals hope all phases -- offense, defense and special teams -- click in a game theyre expected to dominate.Its no different, senior defensive tackle DeAngelo Brown said this week. Weve just got to focus on ourselves, what were doing as a team and do the things weve been coached to do.Louisville enters with more offensive stability thanks to the maturation of dual-threat sophomore quarterback Lamar Jackson. Four of five linemen are back along with a seasoned receiver corps that has added former Cardinals quarterback Reggie Bonnafon to the starting lineup.Brown (40 tackles) is among several leaders on a Cardinals defense that also features leading tackler Keith Kelsey (107) and Devonte Fields (11 sacks). Not to mention, a veteran secondary.Charlotte also has experience that it hopes will translate into a more competitive season. The roster features 15 returning starters and more than two dozen seniors who helped the 49ers win their FBS debut against Georgia State before growing pains kicked in.Charlotte coach Brad Lambert hopes his team savors and builds on playing a Top 25 opponent- even if they are huge underdogs.Its a good challenge for us but I like where our guys are, Lambert said. What do we have to lose? Its going to be fun. We have an old team and an experienced team. ... Well go out, have some fun and enjoy the moment.---Here are other things to watch when Charlotte visits No. 19 Louisville:JACKSONS ACTIONS: Louisville sophomore quarterback Lamar Jackson came a long way after having his first career pass intercepted on a failed trick play. Despite combining for 2,800 yards offensively with 23 touchdowns last season he vows to trust his protection more, recognize coverages better and become a better pocket passer. Coach Bobby Petrino is curious to see if those improvements counter Charlottes multiple defensive fronts. They will probably try to come after us, try to give him some different looks and bring pressure, Petrino said, so it will be good to see what happens.49ERS OFFENSE: Senior RB Kalif Phillips has rushed for school records of 3,113 career yards and 37 touchdowns -- including 961 last season. Charlotte will unveil a new QB in Kevin Olsen, a Miami signee who won the job last spring. He played last season at Riverside (California) City College.CARDS KICKING GAME: Sophomore Evan OHara takes over as Louisvilles place kicker while redshirt freshman Mason King handles punting duties. OHara has the tough job of succeeding reliable John Wallace, but Petrino said he has shown good height, distance and consistency in fall camp. King meanwhile has shown a quick release and good hang time while being pushed by fellow freshman Austin Johnson.OPENING BIDS: Last seasons loss to Auburn in Atlanta was Petrinos first opening-game defeat in 11 lifetime contests. He has won five of six openers in two stints with Louisville.---Follow Gary B. Graves on Twitter at www.Twitter.com/GaryBGraves and APs College Football page at collegefootball.ap.org. Cheap Browns Jerseys China .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. Danny Shelton Jersey . The Americans, skipped by John Shuster, seized the advantage in the eighth end by scoring five points for a 7-3 lead. The Czechs pulled two back in the ninth, but Shusters team of third Jeff Isaacson, second Jared Zezel and lead John Landsteiner ended with another point to secure the last Olympic berth on offer. http://www.cheapbrownsjerseyselite.com/?tag=cheap-kevin-zeitler-jersey .Y. -- Syracuse has turned up the defence at the right time all season, and when High Point threatened to pull off a monumental upset the second-ranked Orange did what they do best with their quick hands and savvy play. Jamar Taylor Jersey . "Hes going to have hip surgery on Jan. 7, and hell be expected to rehabilitate for four to six months beyond that," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said Friday in an interview. Browns Jerseys Free Shipping . He just needed to be his best twisting, turning acrobatic self. "I didnt need to be anybody else, I just needed to be myself and be aggressive," said Burks, who scored a career-high 34 points to spark the Utah Jazz to a 118-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night. The Wallabies insist theyll reap the benefits of their dismal rugby season for years to come, with the tough times set to harden a new generation of stars.The Wallabies entered 2016 with high hopes following a glowing display at the World Cup under Cheika, where they produced a stunning run to the final only to be outclassed by the untouchable All Blacks.But things havent quite gone to plan, with a three-nil sweep on home soil by England punctuating an underwhelming Rugby Championship and another year of Bledisloe Cup disappointment.With seven Tests remaining - including a super-sized, five-Test tour of Europe starting in November - the Wallabies can salvage something from 2016. But even if they dont, coach Michael Cheika can already see the positives.In addition to blooding 10 new players into the Wallabies set up, with potentially more to come this weekend against Argentina at Twickenham, Cheika says the wounds which have been opened up by the All Blacks and England will work for Australia in the long run.It will be the making of us in the end. Tough times breed better times later on, Cheika said.Yeah we went through a tough patch early on in the year, but well get plenty from that later on.I dont want to sound like Im a cliche guy but thats definitely what happens ... in my exxperience in this game.dddddddddddd.You go through great times and then you can go through tougher times, and that will always lead to giving you the scars on the inside to have better times later on.Their most recent loss - an 18-10 effort against the Springboks in a dour contest that Australia dominated but couldnt close out - is a prime example of that, according to Cheika.I think our play is improving too, he said.Even though we got beaten in the game on Saturday, I thought it was our best game so far this season.We just didnt capitalise on our opportunities we created down in the opposition territory.I feel like we are improving and our newer players are getting used to the habits that are required when you play in this team.Key playmaker Quade Cooper agreed, pointing to his tough entry into Super Rugby with the Reds which blossomed into a title in 2011 as proof that hard times breed hard people.But still, Saturdays loss cut deep for the 28-year-old.Like Cheik said, its one of the best games weve played all year, Cooper said.We created so many opportunities, players were in a lot of space but we just didnt finish it off. Thats what hurts so much. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
