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.
