Louisville Stomps Ohio

The Louisville Cardinals absolutely dominated the Ohio Bobcats for four quarters. It was a hard one to swallow for a Bobcats team that had high ambitions heading into the game, and was looking to win another game on a National stage, just as they did a year ago in Happy Valley. The Teddy Bridgewater led Cardinals routed the Bobcats in a 49-7 victory.

Louisville scored on drives of 75, 55, 86, 80, 68, 82 in the game. Bridgewater led a steady and efficient Cardinal offense all day and tossed five touchdowns on 23 of 28 passing, with 355 yards. Five players scored touchdowns with Kai De La Cruz and DeVante Parker accounting for over 200 yards and four touchdowns between the two of them.

On the day, Ohio would manage only 274 yards with Louisville romping for 615.

Keith Moore went down on the first drive of the game with a left ankle injury and missed the rest of the contest. Sam Jonson (left knee) and Jon Lechner (shoulder)  seemed to be having injury problems. Jonson went down after a long completion from Tettleton to Donte Foster, and Lechner was taken out with shoulder issues as previously mentioned.



Ryan Boykin scampered up the middle for a 10-yard touchdown to cap a 5-play 58-yard drive to put Ohio on the Board. They still trail Louisville by a daunting score of 42-7.


All Cardinals. All Red.

The Louisville Cardinals had their way with the Ohio Bobcats in the first half, exhibiting an unstoppable offense (with the exception of a Xavier Hughes reception).

Teddy Bridgewater went 16-20 for 254 yards and four passing touchdowns. He led the Cardinals on scoring drives of 75, 55, 86, and 80. Damian Copeland caught Bridgewater's first two TD passes, with DeVante Parker and Kai De La Cruz scoring the other two.

Ohio was only able to pick up 88 total yards with 77 coming through the air.

Ohio linebacker Keith Moore found himself out of the game within minutes of the start with a left ankle injury, and ESPN's Maria Taylor reported that Moore is out for the game. Tyler Tettleton would also miss snaps with Derrius Vick coming in to replace him (and ultimately throw an interception).

Ohio would have two positive moments, with Hughes picking off a Bridgewater pass in the second quarter. Ohio would go on a 10-play 58-yard receipt before Matt Green would miss a short field goal.


UL going up big.

Teddy Bridewater hooked up with James Quick on a 40-yard touchdown to put the Cardinals up 28-0. That is four touchdowns for Bridgewater, who has gone 16-19 passing for 254 yards. All said and done, Louisville is blazing the bluegrass with 326 total yards.

UL is averaging 13.4 yards per play and has gone on three touchdowns drives of over 70 yards.


Louisville goes up early

On the first drive, Ohio defensive captain and leading tackler from a year ago Keith Moore came up limping and headed to the bench on what seemed to be a left leg injury. It is looking like he will head to the locker room with a left ankle injury.

The defense for Ohio looked less than stellar as Teddy Bridgewater led Louisville on an eight play drive that culminated on a 35-yard pass to Damian Copeland. Bridewater went 6-6 passing for 77 yards to give the Cardinals an early 7-0 lead.
