Louisville's freshman quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw for two first-quarter touchdowns, a 42-yarder to freshman wide receiver to DeVante Paker and a two-yarder to senior tight end Josh Chichester, to help the Cardinals (3-4, 1-1 Big East) earn a 14-0 lead after the first quarter. But, SU (5-2, 1-1) scored the only points in the second quarter after Krautman capped a 11-play, 61-yard drive.
