Louisville Cardinals Overwhelm Temple Owls; UK Falls Short at South Carolina; IU Beats Penn State
Teddy Bridgewater threw for 348 yards and two touchdowns to keep No. 7 Louisville undefeated with a 30-7 win over winless Temple on Saturday.
Bridgewater made it look easy against the overwhelmed Owls (0-5, 0-2 American Athletic Conference). He threw for 228 yards in the first half to help the Cardinals roll to a 24-0 lead.
The Cardinals (5-0, 1-0) lost a bid for their second straight shutout when Temple scored with 38 seconds left.
Louisville receiver DeVante Parker, who has six touchdown catches this season, left in the first half with an injured right shoulder. Without one of his favorite targets, Bridgewater was still impressive, completing 25 of 35 passes. He threw a TD pass for the 17th straight game.
Under first-year coach Matt Rhule, the Owls remained winless in program history against top-10 teams.
Number 12 South Carolina held off a Kentucky comeback for a 35-28 victory Saturday night.
The Wildcats rallied from 21-0 to pull within six points of the Gamecocks in the fourth quarter, but South Carolina was able to hold on and beat Kentucky for the 13th time in the last 14 meetings.
UK takes on Alabama next Saturday in Lexington.
Indiana recorded its first-ever win over Penn State Saturday, defeating the Nittany Lions 44-24 in Bloomington.
