Louisville didn't put on the show most were hoping for but it was enough for the Cardinals to improve to 6-0 on the season. Teddy Bridgewater threw for 310 yards and two touchdowns, while the Louisville defense held Rutgers to just 240 yards of offense. It was a team win for the Cardinals, but many were expecting to see a blowout on national television that would have gained the attention of voters.
Instead, it was a sloppy win that wasn't decided until late in the fourth quarter. Rutgers couldn't get the offense going thanks to Gray Nova's constant struggles and the lack of a running game that managed just 12 yards on the ground.
Rutgers drops to 4-2 on the season and will play Houston in two weeks, while Louisville will put its undefeated record on the line against UCF next week.
