On wednesday night the Louisville Cardinals football team did what no one thought they could do…not only beat but destroy the #3 ranked Florida Gators, 33-23. It was evident on the first play of the game that Louisville came to play.  Terell Floyd intercepted a pass and ran it back for a pick six only 15 seconds into the game.  Then it was on from there, the cardinals went into halftime up 24-10. To start the second half, Florida tried and did not succeed on a “surprise” onside kick.  Louisville recovered and Florida got 2 personal foul penalties called on them.  It ended up being a 30 yard penalty on one play.  The very next play Bridgewater threw a touchdown pass to Copeland and extedned the lead to 30-10. After that it was all about managing to clock for the Cards.  Jeremy Wright ended up with 84 yards rushing with most of those yards coming in the second half. Many are saying that this is the biggest win in Louisville history and I’d have to agree.  Louisville had to prove that they were gonna be a viable option in the ACC and they did just that.  Also no one gave them a chance leading up to the game.  This is, according to the lines in Vegas, the biggest upset in BCS history. Teddy Bridgewater is now on many experts Heisman watch for next year after carving up the Gators defense.  Bridgewater was 20/32 for 266 yards and 2 TD’s. Now we all hope that this win can sway James Quick and Jason Hatcher to come to Louisville.
