In college football, the Louisville Cardinals need to win their final four games of the season to avoid a losing record. The 2 and 6 Cardinals have a tough task ahead of them Saturday when they visit second-ranked Clemson. 

U of L has dropped five straight games and coach Bobby Petrino says he’s encouraging his team to stay positive and stick together. 

“And not let this affect you, you know, let defeat affect you. And understand that you have to overcome obstacles in life, you have to overcome setbacks, and that there’s no quick fixes, there’s no magic wand that you can put out there, you know. There’s no one in that locker room that wants to be 2 and 6, I can tell you that,” said Petrino.
 
U of L and Clemson kick off at noon. 

In Lexington, the 11th ranked Kentucky Wildcats will play one of the biggest games in program history when they take on number six Georgia. The winner will capture the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division title. Kickoff is at 3:30pm Saturday. 

In other upcoming games, Western Kentucky visits Middle Tennessee State Friday; Eastern Kentucky is at Austin Peay Saturday; Murray State travels to Tennessee Tech and Morehead State hosts Stetson. 
Indiana is idle this week.
