I don't feel like doing a whole post on the Louisville 34-31 victory over Cincinnati, so I'll do 10 things that stand out to me after the game.
1) Damn that 4th quarter was a lot of fun
You had Teddy Bridgewater throwing gorgeous deep passes on a 93 yard drive to tie the score. DeVante Parker broke a catch for 64 yards when a 1 handed Deven Drane made a horrible attempt to try and tackle him. Then Cincinnati marches down the field in less than a minute. Munchie Legaux threw a beautiful pass to Damon Julian for the tying score. High drama, explosive plays, fun football.
2) Overtime sucked a big fat one
The run plays to open up OT weren't great. The 3rd down pass by Munchie Legaux had me, you, your dad, your mom, your grand pappy, your grand mammy, your cousin with the glass eye, your aunt with the mole, all yelling NOOOOOOOOOOOOO as it floated and floated and floated into the arms of Terrell Floyd. Just a back breaker.
3) Icing the kicker is really...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Louisville kept their undefeated alive by coming out on top of a wild Big East contest against Cincinnati. Teddy Bridgewater passed for over 400 yards and he and Munchie Legaux were each able to put together late touchdown drives to send the game in to overtime. It was a wild fourth quarter as Louisville battled back against a Cincinnati defense that was looking gassed perhaps overdoing...
FYI, Muchie Legaux is not better than Teddy Bridgewater.
After making the game winning 30 yard field goal try in overtime Friday night, John Wallace is now 7-8 on the season.
Preston Brown was the Cards leading tackler for the second consecutive game and also recorded his first career interception (which was correctly predicted by our own Nick Coffey on the Inside The Press Box...
At times it felt like we were witnessing a Big 12 game out there as Louisville (8-0, 3-0) pulled out a crazy 34-31 overtime victory over rival Cincinnati (5-2, 1-1) and took home The Keg of Nails for the first time in five seasons. Even sweeter for Louisville is the fact that they improved to 8-0 and kept their chances at being in a BCS bowl alive and well.
Before the game Munchie...
Cincinnati head coach Butch Jones met with the media earlier this week to recap the Bearcats loss to Toledo and briefly look ahead to this week’s matchup with Louisville. Here are some quotes from Jones when asked about Louisville, courtesy of GoBearcats.com.
“Offensively when you think of Louisville, you think of Teddy Bridgewater and he can manage their offense. Extremely accurate...
Tonight is the annual meeting between the Louisville Cardinals and the Cincinnati Bearcats. I'm excited for the game, you are excited and my guest at this time is excited. That man is Mark Ennis. He is Mengus22 on twitter. I'm sure a lot of you follow him already. He runs the Big East blog Big East Coast Bias on SB Nation.

While Louisville looks to keep alive the dream of an undefeated season, Cincinnati can only try to ruin that hope after blowing its own chance at one.
The toughest test yet for the 16th-ranked Cardinals, and maybe their biggest until the season finale, appears to come Friday night when they host a Bearcats team coming off its first loss.
All but one of Louisville's victories...
