U of L Tops Cincinnati in Overtime

A 30 yard field goal by John Wallace gave the Louisville Cards a 34-31 overtime victory over the Cincinnati Bearcats on a rainy Friday night at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

The Cards got their chance to win the game after intercepting a Cincinnati pass on the first overtime possession. The winning score came right after Wallace's first field goal attempt. There was a high snap on the first try, but the play was whistled dead because Cincinnati coach Butch Jones had called time out.

U of L improves to 8-0 on the season and 2-0 in the Big East Conference. Cincinnati falls to 5-2 and 1-1 in the conference.

The win snapped the Cards’ four-game losing streak to Cincinnati in the annual battle for the Keg of Nails.

Louisville hosts Temple next Saturday at noon.
