The Cards moved to 2-0 with a win over Missouri State Saturday.
Louisville’s defense held up their end this week allowing just seven points and the offense put up 35 to make the final score 35-7.
Teddy Bridgewater finished 30-of-39 for 344 yards and two touchdowns. He’s absolutely in the zone right now and while his outing today was great, he still showed areas of his game that need work.
Teddy spread the ball around well and both of his touchdown passes came on goal line plays to tight ends. Nate Nord and Ryan Hubbell each snagging a TD.
The Cards had two backs run for over 100 yards each last week, but couldn’t match that production Saturday. As a team the Cards hit the 100 yard mark with 119 and scored two touchdowns on the ground. They did rush the ball 37 times however and averaged just 3.2 yards per rush. An area of the game that still needs to improve.
UofL converted their second first-half two-point conversion of the season as Will Stein found Marcus Smith in the corner of the end zone.
The kicking game for the Cards proved not to be a point of weakness against MSU as Matthew Nakatani converted two field goals including a kick of 45 yards in the second half.
