UL Game Recap

The Louisville Cardinals showed why they belong in the top ten Saturday as they dominated the Golden Panthers of Florida International. The game, or lack thereof, turned into a Heisman resume builder for Cards quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, as the junior threw for over 200 yards and four touchdowns in three quarters of work.

The Louisville defense continued on last week’s impressive performance as they held the Panthers to just 30 yards on offense, breaking a school record. All three of the featured backs for the Cards found the end zone via rush, and Charles Gaines contributed to the scoring onslaught with a 93 yard kickoff return to open up the second half.

Player of the game: No shocker here, Teddy Bridgewater gets my nod for Saturday’s MVP. With his four touchdown passes, TB is now the first quarterback to throw for four touchdowns in at least three games this season.

Stat of the game: With another dominating day for the guys on defense, they now lead the country with allowing only 6.8 points a game.

My two cents: The game was never close as the Cards played their best game of the season. Although, the competition wasn’t necessarily top-notch, Louisville executed in all three aspects of the game as perfectly as one could hope for. If they can continue this pace of dominance as conference play begins next week, there is no excuse for the Cardinals not to run the table, and find themselves in their second straight BCS Bowl. However, knowing college football, anything can happen.
