Tampa, FL (SportsNetwork.com) – The 18th-ranked Louisville Cardinals did not
blow a big lead this week.

Teddy Bridgewater was an efficient 25-of-29 passing for 344 yards and three
touchdowns in Louisville’s 34-3 victory over the South Florida Bulls on
Saturday.

The Cardinals were cruising along, leading 28-7, midway through the third
quarter at home against UCF last Friday night. Then the unthinkable happened.
The Cardinals were unable to slow down the Knights in the second half as they
fell in a 38-35 decision.

Gerald Christian, Damian Copeland and Dominique Brown each caught touchdown
passes on Saturday for the Cardinals (7-1, 3-1 AAC), who racked up 485 yards
of total offense. Brown also carried the ball 18 times for 125 yards.

Bobby Eveld completed 3-of-5 passes for 22 yards before leaving at the end of
the first half with a left ankle injury for the Bulls (2-5, 2-1), who had a
two-game winning streak snapped. Steven Bench connected on 5-of-14 passes for
73 yards and an interception in relief.
