Louisville senior WR DeVante Parker caught four passes for 65 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 31-28 win over Notre Dame.

Parker showed his athleticism on a 3rd-and-10 conversion where he caught the ball and broke through tackles and spun to the first down. Parker also hauled in a 21-yard scoring pass in the fourth quarter to put the Cardinals in the lead for good. Outside of those two plays, the Notre Dame defense did a good job limiting his damage. This was Parker's fourth game back from a foot injury. He's already amassed 555 yards and two touchdowns. When healthy, he is one of the best in the nation.

Louisville senior WR DeVante Parker was listed at No. 9 overall on Todd McShay's latest big board.

"He has an above-average size-speed combo with the ability to run under the deep ball and make defenders miss and pick up extra yards after the catch," McShay says. "He has good separation skills and can pluck the ball out of the air and make over-the-shoulder catches." Parker recently returned from a broken foot and has picked up right where he left off. The Cardinals face Notre Dame on Saturday. For McShay Parker checks in after Amari Cooper (No. 5), but before Kevin White (No. 14), Devin Funchess (No. 19), Jaelen Strong (No. 26) and Ty Montgomery (No. 29).

Louisville senior edge rusher Lorenzo Mauldin has accepted his invite to the Senior Bowl.

No surprise here. Mauldin had posted his invite to Instagram, as that's what the cool kids do these days. The 6-foot-4, 240-pounder has been dealing with a nagging hamstring issue this month, but when healthy he's a team leader. Solid performances in the Senior Bowl and combine might have the senior pushing up draft boards. He's already seen as a potential first-round pick and teams love his leadership qualities and ability to move blockers.

Louisville senior T Jamon Brown will participate in the East-West Shrine game.

Brown stands at a massive 6'6/326 pounds and has started at left tackle over the last two seasons after earning the starting right tackle gig as a sophomore in 2012. Tony Pauline has questioned Brown's conditioning in the past and believes his best fit is on the inside in the NFL.

Louisville senior RB Dominique Brown has accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine game.

Brown has not played in the last three games and has lost a number of carries to Michael Dyer. However, before then he rushed for 374 yards and four touchdowns on 95 carries, a major drop in production compared to 2013.

Louisville senior edge rusher Lorenzo Mauldin has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

Mauldin put his invite up on Instagram. The senior missed Louisville's last game with a hamstring injury, but prior to the injury had put up 6.5 sacks, 12 tackles for loss and seven quarterback hurries. He leads the team in all of these categories. In late October, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that with quality performances at the Senior Bowl and combine, Mauldin has a chance to make "a late dash" up draft boards.

Louisville HC Bobby Petrino is reportedly set to receive a $500,000 academic bonus at the end of the season.

According to, "the bonus would be the result of his players maintaining at least a 935 score on their Academic Progress Rate (APR), which accounts for eligibility and retention of players on the team." $500,000 would be one of the biggest such bonuses in college football history. Louisville sports information director Kenny Klein said the school is still finalizing the APR for the 2013-14 season, but that he believes Petrino has met the mark. The bonus is more than what Petrino would receive if Louisville won the national title. Louisville is 7-2 this season, though they just lost starting quarterback Will Gardner to a knee injury.
Nov 11 - 9:28 PM

Louisville redshirt sophomore QB Will Gardner will miss the remainder of the season with a left knee injury, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

Gardner was injured against Boston College and true freshman Reggie Bonnafon stepped up in his place. Bonnafon had already replaced an injured Gardner earlier in the season, and this time he will be throwing to stud receiver DeVante Parker.
Nov 11 - 2:01 PM media analyst Bucky Brooks wrote that Louisville redshirt sophomore S Gerod Holliman could possibly "develop into a game-changing defender at the next level."

Holliman leads the nation with 13 interceptions and is coming off of a three-interception game against Boston College. Brooks noted that "[Holliman] exhibits the hands and ball skills of a receiver, yet plays with the aggressiveness that also allows him to act as an enforcer between the hashes" and that he was reminded of Ed Reed during Reed's senior season at Miami. Brooks did caution that "there is a bit of a "one-year wonder" concern surrounding Holliman's game based on his lack of production as a freshman." In his freshman year, Holliman did not intercept a pass.

Louisville redshirt sophomore S Gerod Holliman had three interceptions against Boston College on Saturday.

At this point, we're more shocked if Holliman doesn't intercept a pass in a game. He now has 13 picks on the year to lead the nation and the buzz around him continues to grow. After the sophomore picked off two against Florida State a week and a half ago,'s Bucky Brooks wrote that "[Holliman] displays outstanding ball skills and strong hands when the ball is in his area." Brooks said that the 6-foot-1, 206-pounder was a "top prospect to watch down the road."
Nov 9 - 11:06 PM

Louisville senior WR DeVante Parker caught eight passes for 144 yards and a touchdown in the school's 38-19 win over Boston College.

In the second quarter, Parker made a press corner look stupid with an inside to outside release for a 35 yard gain. He then left his feet for a 29 yard score later in the quarter. It took some time for Parker to work out the kinks, but we think he is back to 2013 form.
Nov 9 - 3:30 PM

Louisville sophomore WR James Quick has been suspended for a violation of team rules.

Quick is the school's leading receiver from a production standpoint, catching 31 passes for 459 yards and three touchdowns. Louisville did get back their top prospect in DeVante Parker a couple of weeks ago. No further details on the suspension have been announced at this time. The school faces Boston College on Saturday.
Nov 8 - 2:37 PM

Louisville senior edge rusher Lorenzo Mauldin (hamstring) will not play against Boston College on Saturday.

Mauldin aggravated the injury against Florida State on October 30, though he was able to return in the third quarter of that game. Mauldin has 6.5 sacks, 12 tackles for loss and seven quarterback hurries. He is the team leader in all of those categories. The 6-foot-4, 243-pound senior could potentially be drafted in the first round in 2015. CBS Sports' Derek Stephens wrote over the summer that, "at the point of attack, [Mauldin] demonstrates active, quick hands to keep much larger opponents out of his chest and when given some space to get up to speed, exhibits surprising pop and drive to move blockers."
Nov 6 - 9:36 PM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote that Louisville senior WR DeVante Parker "has been nothing short of fantastic over the last two games."

Parker had missed much of the season with a broken foot suffered in late August, but he's come back with a vengeance over the last two games and has already accumulated 347 yards on 17 catches. Brugler wrote that "West Virginia's Kevin White has emerged as arguably the top senior wideout, but Parker has quickly reminded everyone that he's also in the first round discussion." In October, Brugler noted that "near full health, he is one of the most impressive wideouts in the country with his tall frame, speed to stretch the field and wingspan, giving him a large catching radius."

Nov 4 - 5:24 PM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler noted that Louisville senior RB Michael Dyer is "showing what made him one of the top high school recruits in the country."

Dyer busted out for 134 yards and three touchdowns on 28 carries in last Thursday's loss to Florida State. Of the Auburn transfer, Brugler wrote, "Dyer had been an afterthought for most college football fans, but scouts and draft evaluators have kept a cautious eye on the talented back." The 5-foot-9, 214-pound back was dealing with injury concerns earlier in the season, but he's started to pour it on in his last two contests, with 173 yards against North Carolina in mid-October and the big effort against Florida State. Brugler finished by saying that Dyer's draft status was "a little complicated," but that "there's no question his talent will be attractive to next level teams."
