Louisville coach Bobby Petrino is raising expectations ahead of his team’s season-opening tilt against Alabama.

At a Louisville luncheon ahead of the Sept. 1 game against the Crimson Tide, Petrino promised that the Cardinals were going to take out Alabama in the season opener.

It’s quite the lofty proclamation given what the Crimson Tide are expected to be. Petrino may just be trying to rile up his fan base, but while stranger things have happened, it’s safe to say Alabama will be favored in this one. The Tide are unlikely to be impacted by outside forces, either.
