With two games down and two wins already under Louisville’s belt, the Cardinals’ bowl prospects are pretty good. That shouldn’t come as a surprise to most, of course, but the bowl projections themselves and adjustments to win totals provide some intrigue.

Louisville’s preseason ranking of 40th in Bill Connelly’s SP+ fell to 51st after the wild Georgia Tech game, but shot up to 27th after exceeding expectations in its blow against Murray State. And Louisville’s wins over Georgia Tech and Murray State have helped improve ESPN FPI projections for them, as their projected record for the Cardinals improved from a 6.9-5.2 record (7-5 ​​real world) to 8.3-3.9 (8-4), which is roughly 95.1% chances of reaching bowl eligibility. And here’s how FPI projects the Cardinals’ chances of winning each of the remaining games:

Indiana – 74.4% (71.2% preseason)

Boston University: 92.1% (78.6%)

State of North Carolina: 56.4% (32.2%)

#9 Notre Dame – 24.7% (21.2%)

Pittsburgh: 44.3% (29.2%)

#21 Duke – 67% (67.6%)

Virginia Tech: 81.4% (71.5%)

Virginia: 78.5 (90.9%)

#22 Miami – 26.7% (29.1%)

Kentucky: 65.6% (41.4%)

Nothing too shocking here. With NC State, Pitt and Kentucky looking more vulnerable than originally expected, those win probability numbers have changed quite a bit and the biggest is now projected to be Louisville to beat Kentucky (I like it). And with Miami’s win over Texas A&M last week, their chance to win was the only one against the Cardinals.
