Final Score: Louisville 27, Syracuse 10

Freshman quarterback Teddy Bridgewater tossed for 198-passing yards and two touchdowns Saturday to help the University of Louisville football program beat Syracuse University, 27-10, in Big East Conference game at Papa John's Cardinals Stadium. The Cardinals (4-4, 2-1 Big East) scored two first-quarter touchdowns to take an early 14-0 lead and then iced the contest with a 61-yard TD run by senior running back Victor Anderson, who gave Louisville a 24-3 lead with 10:32 remaining.

"Obviously we're disappointed. We lost the football game," said Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone after the game. "I think you're only disappointed when you've lost. I'm disappointed in myself, the other coaches, and the players in the locker room."

The Cardinals, who are now on a two-game winning streak, opened up the game with a four-play, 92-yard drive, which was capped by a 42-yard TD reception by freshman wide receiver DaVante Paker. Two Cardinal possessions later, Louisville tallied its second first-quarter TD when Bridgewater connected with senior tight end Josh Chichester on a two-yard pass that ended a nine-play, 50-yard drive.

Syracuse cut Louisville margin to 14-3 after sophomore kicker Ross Krautman nailed a 24-yard, second-quarter field goal that came with 3:19 remaining. The Orange were held scoreless in the third quarter and scored their lone TD during garbage time when Nassib connected with sophomore wide receiver Jarrod West on a 20-yard TD pass, the games final score, with 1:31 to go in the game.

The Orange (5-3, 1-2), who dominated nationally-ranked West Virginia University, 49-23, last week, was manhandled by Louisville on both ends of the ball. Senior quarterback Ryan Nassib played by far his worst game of the season completing just 22-of-36 passes for a season-low 162-passing yards and was sacked four times. Nassib also missed many deep passes that could have led to easy TD scores.

"We took a chance and tried to make some plays early on trying to be aggressive against the pressure and man defense," said Marrone. "We weren't able to make those plays."

"At the end of the day it's a team loss and I have to take a good look at myself in the mirror and make sure I can come back and find a way to put our players in position to win football games and play Syracuse football."

Overall, SU had its lowest offensive output of the season compiling a season-low in points (10), total yards (246), first downs (14) and third-down conversions (21.4 percent). The Orange also committed a season-high 12 penalties for 99 yards.

Louisville-Syracuse Update (End Of First Quarter): Cardinals Lead Orange, 14-0

Two touchdown passes by freshman quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has helped the University of Louisville take a 14-0 advantage over visiting Syracuse University in a Big East Conference game at Papa John's Cardinals Stadium. Louisville (3-4, 1-1 Big East) used just four plays, including a 42-yard TD to freshman wide receiver DeVante Parker, to march 92 yards and score its first open-drive touchdown of the season. Then, on its third possession of the quarter, the Cardinals used a nine-play, 50-yard drive, capped by a two-yard TD reception by senior tight end Josh Chichester, to help take a 14-point lead.

Surprisingly,  the Cardinals could be leading 21-0, but a holding call, on Louisville's second possession of the quarter, took a TD pass of the board and then a fumble, a play later, allowed SU gain possession.

The Orange (5-2, 1-1), who are looking to become bowl eligible for the second straight season, went three-and-out on their two first-quarter possessions, but will start the second quarter near midfield after converting two first downs on its third possession of the quarter.
