Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, playing in what might have been his last college game, threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score to help No. 18 Louisville rout Miami 36-9 on Saturday night. Russell Athletic Bowl, played in Orlando was a great showcase event for the Cards junior signal caller who many feel will forgo his senior season to enter the 2014 NFL Draft.
Louisville (12-1) spotted Miami (9-4) an early 2-0 lead, then dominated the rest of the way, racking up 554 total yards to the Hurricanes’ 174. Bridgewater showed pro scouts all of his best moves as he was 35 for 45 for career-high 447 yards.
Next season the Hurricanes and the Cardinals will face each other yearly as members the ACC.
