Marcus Smith Says Bringing Pressure Has Been The Key For Louisville’s Defense


I caught up with senior defensive end Marcus Smith following Louisville’s dominant 72-0 win over FIU on Saturday. A 72-0 score really stands out as an offensive explosion, but if you watched the entire game, it was the Louisville defense that was the most dominant unit.

Smith talked about some of the differences from last year to this year with the Cardinal defense. One change that Smith mentioned was the increase in pressure. He also talked about the boost that the defensive line received once Clint Hurtt was back with the team.
