Seeing Oregon football team run over foes gives Ducks idea of what they're in for vs. Cards

The speed. The quickness. The penchant for causing chaos and mayhem. The ability to take a manageable game and turn it into a blowout in a matter of seconds.

Yeah, Dana Altman and his Oregon Ducks know exactly what they're up against with Louisville and that hair-on-fire defense. They've been watching the Oregon football team wreak the same kind of havoc for years now.

The Cardinals (31-5) looked every bit the overall top seed in their first two games, routing North Carolina A&T and Colorado State by an average of 28.5 points while forcing 47 turnovers. The stats are even scarier in Louisville's 12-game winning streak. The Cardinals have held opponents to less than 55 points and 38 percent shooting during the run, forcing an average of almost 19 turnovers.
