Over the next two weeks, the unbeaten, eighth-ranked Louisville Cardinals may get their two toughest tests of the season.

On Thursday, the Cardinals host the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (7:30 pm EST, ESPN). The Scarlet Knights lost their opening game 52-51 to the Fresno State Bulldogs in overtime, but have bounced back to win four straight, including a 28-24 come from behind victory over the SEC’s Arkansas Razorbacks on September 24. The Scarlet Knights earned a 55-52 overtime victory over the Southern Methodist Mustangs Saturday.

Then, on Friday October 18, the Cardinals will host the Central Florida Golden Knights (8:00 pm EST, ESPN). The Knights are coming off of a 24-17 victory over the Memphis Tigers and are also 4-1 on the season. Their schedule features a 34-31 win over the Nittany Lions at Penn State and a 28-25 home loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks.

When the Cardinals roll into these matchups, they could be with junior wide receiver DeVante Parker, who injured his shoulder in a 30-7 win over the Temple Owls Saturday.

On Monday, head coach Charlie Strong told the Associated Press, Parker is day-to-day.

On the season, Parker has 21 receptions for  375 yards and six touchdowns.
