The good news is that Eagles have the momentum of a solid win over Pitt on Sunday afternoon for their second conference win behind them going into tonight’s game. The bad news is that they will be running into 4th-ranked and ACC-leading Louisville, who will be hungry after a loss to No. 1 UConn this week. The Eagles were able to limit turnovers, a prevailing issue for them all season, last time out. They will need to do so again to have any chance of hanging with the Cardinals tonight.

What happened in their last faceoff? The Cards beat BC 68-43 at Louisville last February.
