University of Louisville football coach Steve Kragthorpe says his team is happy to get another win under its belt after three straight losses, but must now set its sights on resuming a tough conference schedule.
The Cards defeated Southern Mississippi 25-23 Saturday night with a late-game field goal by senior Ryan Payne.
The win improved U of L’s record to 2-3 on the season.
Coach Steve Kragthorpe says he’s aware that the Cards’ slow start has fueled speculation about his job security, but he doesn’t let it bother him.
“I’m not control of my situation, and nobody on this earth is in control of my situation. I’ll do what He tells me to do, I’ll be where He tells me to be, but nobody on this earth controls my life,” Kragthorpe said.
The Cards travel to Connecticut this Saturday for a noon kickoff; they’ll play highly-ranked Cincinnati the following weekend.
