College football team kickoff luncheons are generally pretty tame affairs. But Louisville’s added a little spice when head coach Bobby Petrino had this to say about the Cardinals’ first opponent, Alabama:

“I believe we’re gonna go beat em. And we will go beat em.”

Those were Petrino’s final remarks at the event, first reported by ESPNLouiville.com’s Jason Anderson. The sold out luncheon was held at the Marriott Grand Ballroom in downtown Louisville.

Louisville and Alabama meet in the season opening Camping World Kickoff in Orlando, Fla., at 8 p.m. Sept. 1. Alabama is the defending national champion with Madison Southern star Damien Harris returning for his senior year at tailback for the Crimson Tide.

Governor Matt Bevin was at Kroger Field to present the Governor’s Cup trophy to University of Louisville football team while Kentucky football team walks away defeated with a final score of 44-17.
