Louisville’s Defense Stole Teddy Bridgewater’s Thunder

Teddy Bridgewater's performance would usually be the takeaway from a blowout Louisville win over FIU. Bridgewater did his thing. He threw for a meek 212 yards, slapping on an extra four touchdowns for good measure in Louisville's 72-0 win. Lest you forget that this is a Charlie Strong defense, Saturday was a reminder. FIU was the unfortunate messenger.

The defense pitched the closest thing to a perfect game that you'll ever see. The Cardinals held the FIU defense to 30 yards overall in a beat down that was emblematic of this weekend's slate of cupcake games. It's not all good news for Bridgewater this week though.
