Jeff Brohm’s team made a statement to the rest of the ACC on Friday. Louisville went on the road and defeated NC State 13-10.

Brohm said Friday night showed his team’s toughness and grit.

“I’m really proud of our football team, I think, to go on the road, gut out of win in a sold-out environment we hadn’t, we hadn’t done that before,” Brohm said in his postgame press conference. “To do that and fight to the very end, it just shows a great toughness by our football team. Some veterans really stepped up and did a good job. Really just proud of them.”

Brohm still sees room for improvement as his team heads into Week 6.

“A lot of things we could have done better, without question, but when you play good football teams, you’re not going to win every rep,” Brohm told reporters. “You just have to find a way to win more than they do. I think overall, we made enough plays, and a lot to learn. Just a really good win to come out of here, on the road, with the W.”

Louisville’s 5-0 start is turning heads in the college football world, but Brohm said the Cardinals aren’t concerning themselves with hype or expectations.

“We treat is as a one game season,” Brohm said after the win. “While that’s boring for everyone else, you have to do it. You got to put everything you got in one game in order to win. As soon as you look beyond as a coach, as a player, you’re gonna get beat. I think our players and coaches have learned that.

“We know the schedule ahead is going to continue to get more difficult, and there’s big games in front of us. But we got to learn from each game. We’re happy to be where we’re at. But we want to continue to find a way to win the next game.”
