By now you’ve have a chance to read the hype, inside information, comparison analysis and position breakdowns for the big game. You can rattle off the starters in the Louisville secondary forwards and backwards, and probably give an off-the-cuff speech on the series.

Or, you might be new to Card Game and just want to try your luck. If that’s the case, welcome, and read, comment and bug Charlie all you want…

But can you pick the final score?

Get out your thinking caps, mull over the strengths and weaknesses of each squad, and quiz your mailman. Repeat and rinse. Then, go to the Comments section and post it.

For the record, I’m going 24-21 Cats over Cards. Before you start hurling rotten tomatoes and leaving stray cats in my front yard, know full well that nothing would please me more than seeing UofL pull the upset. I just don’t see it “in the Cards” this year.

Charlie is providing a free T-shirt to the winner — the front of which says, “The only thing I hate more than Kentucky basketball,’ and the back “is Kentucky fans.”

Good luck!

    UK wins 31-10, UofL only scores on Trent Guy Return for a TD. Sucks, but not sure how the Cards have improved since last years game and UK’s Offense definitely looks improved.

    After several days of thought, intensive discussion with my yorkies about the rivalry factor and a really weird dream where I was at the game sitting with Bobby Petrino and Paul Rogers (don’t ask..)I have my prediction. No more double brownie chocolate ice cream before bedtime!

    Louisville will score first with a field goal, but will only get another field goal and a touchdown.
    Kentucky will score three touchdowns (missing one extra point) and three field goals.
