Louisville travels to Pittsburgh to play a morning game against Panthers at Heinz Field.

Who likes football for breakfast?

That's what late-rising college football fans will be treated to Saturday as the No. 18 Louisville Cardinals travel to Pittsburgh to face the Panthers at Heinz Field.

While the Big East is down and not well represented in the top 25 polls, Louisville is part of the national conversation, undefeated at 5-0 and ready to kick-off Big East Conference play against a struggling Panthers club.

A longshot Heisman candidate, Cardinals quarterback Teddy Bridgewater could light up the scoreboard and snap his team's four game losing streak to Pitt, which defeated the Cards 21-14 last season.

Bridgewater is as efficient as they come under center, completing 73 percent of his passes, some in ugly weather conditions. Saturday's game is calling for clear weather, so the sophomore quarterback will likely have plenty of passing plays called for him as he looks to slice up an average Pittsburgh defense.

This could be a real turning point game for both teams. Louisville wins, they're undefeated mid-way through the season. Pittsburgh prevails, and they have a quality win to hang their hat on and build momentum.

Gametime, TV: 11 a.m. ET, ESPNU

Points: Louisville (-3)
