The Cardinals perfect season is still alive. The Cardinals started slow, but were able to take care of business Saturday beating Temple 45-17 to become the first ever Louisville football team to make it to 9-0.

The Cards fell behind for the sixth straight game and this time it happened right out of the gate as Temple returned the opening kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown. But then the Cardinals offense went right to work as Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater led the Birds down field for a touchdown tying the game at 7.
The Cardinals would end up scoring on five of their first six possessions  Teddy Bridgewater was brilliant throwing for 324 yards, completing 19 of 28 passes, and throwing a career high five touchdown passes.  
The Cardinal defense had its struggles early on, but got locked in late and ended up shutting out the Temple offense in the second half. 


The Cardinals are now 9-0 for the first time ever and the chances of the Cards returning to the BCS also look bright.

But there’s still a way to go.

Next week the Cardinals will travel to Syracuse to face the Orange and although the Orange are only 4-5 they should not be overlooked. The Cards will need to come ready to play next Saturday.
