The Cardinal Connect:
Now that a full 24-hours have passed since the Louisville football program claimed the Governor’s Cup for the third consecutive year, let’s take a look book some of the good and bad that came from the 27-13 victory.
Adjustments: The team we saw in the first half didn’t look like the team we’d seen in the previous two weeks. For the first time in a while, the team, as a whole, looked a bit rattled. Kentucky threw a defense at the Louisville offense that they didn’t necessarily expect. Fortunately the necessary adjustments were made at the half and the Cards came out played their best football of the day in the third quarter.
Offensive Line: You have to credit Kentucky’s defensive line for playing well, particularly in the first half, but with said, the Louisville offensive line really struggled at times on Saturday. For the first time this season, Teddy Bridgewater had to use his legs to make plans and didn’t get a lot of protection. The running game was nonexist...
BEST OF MAXIM
Senorise Perry ran for 100 yards and two touchdowns and Teddy Bridgewater overcame a shaky start to pass for 250 yards and No. 7 Louisville scored on four consecutive drives to pull away from rival Kentucky for a 27-13 victory on Saturday.
The Cardinals' defense forced three turnovers, including two in their territory to preserve a win that required more work after easy wins...
Louisville Cardinals junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is among the leading candidates to win the Heisman Memorial Trophy this season. And it's easy to see why with talented receivers surrounding him such as potential NFL first round pick DeVante Parker snagging balls like this.

After a slow start the Louisville Cardinals defeat Kentucky and hold on to the Governors Cup. Teddy Bridgewater and DeVonte Parker connected in the end zone to give Louisville their first touchdown of the game. Senorise Perry punched in two more touchdowns while rushing for 100 yards.
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Teddy Bridgewater was the MVP of the Governor’s Cup game on Saturday afternoon as the University of Louisville beat Kentucky 27-13. But the game ball should go to the entire U of L defense after playing a stellar game against the Wildcats before 65,445 fans in Commonwealth Stadium.
Unless something changes, Louisville junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is expected to be the first quarterback taken in the 2014 NFL Draft. Depending on which team gets the first pick, he may actually be the first overall selection.
There are multiple NFL franchises that have very little optimism about their 2013 season. Therefore, the Tank For Teddy movement has already begun...
There would be no blowout.
Uncomfortable feeling all game long, with all the enthusiasm on the Kentucky side of the ball, the Wildcats driven by emotion.
Fortunately, the game is 60 minutes.
The adrenaline level of UK’s defensive line, dropping like at lead balloon in the second half. Teddy Bridgewater not letting them off the field, draining them, of the extra motivation, revealing...
I’m not really sure where to start. Louisville defeated Kentucky 27-13 to claim the Governor’s Cup for the third consecutive year, which is a good thing, right? A win is always good, but Louisville was less than impressive today.
I’m not exactly what team showed up in the first half. I credit Kentucky for showing up with a lot of effort and enthusiasm. To be honest, Kentucky...

I’m not sure what was better on this play, the throw from Teddy Bridgewater or the amazing catch by DeVante Parker.
I’m joking, this is an amazing catch by Parker to finally get Louisville in the endzone and up 10-3 on rival Kentucky.
H/T Bleacher Report
While Louisville possesses one of the top quarterbacks in the nation, it hopes the emergence of a dangerous ground attack can help it become even more prolific offensively.
The seventh-ranked Cardinals look to build on some newfound balance Saturday when they host a Florida International team that has given them trouble in the last two meetings.
