No. 20 Louisville beats Connecticut 31-10
LOUISVILLE 31, CONNECTICUT 10

By PAT EATON-ROBB

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Teddy Bridgewater threw for 288
yards and a touchdown to lead No. 20 Louisville to a 31-10
victory over winless Connecticut on Friday night.

Bridgewater completed 21 of 37 passes. He has thrown 24
touchdown passes this season and has at least one scoring pass
in 21 straight games.

The win kept the Cardinals (8-1, 4-1 American Athletic
Conference) a game out of first place in the AAC, behind the
winner of the game Saturday night between Houston and Central
Florida.

Tim Boyle threw three interceptions and had only 113 yards for
Connecticut (0-8, 0-4). The Huskies are 0-9 since upsetting the
Cardinals in three overtimes last November in Louisville.

Louisville had 369 yards in offense and held the Huskies to 237.
The Cardinals have allowed only 95 points this season.

It was a methodical, but not spectacular performance for
Bridgewater before a national television audience and
representatives from six NFL teams in the press box. He came
into the game completing almost 74 percent of his passes. He
might have been close to that Friday, but was victimized by
numerous drops, as his receivers seemed to struggle catching a
hard ball with the temperature hovering in the 30s.

Bridgewater threw just his third interception of the season in
the third quarter when UConn's Andrew Adams stepped in front of
a pass. But cornerback Terell Floyd got that back on the next
play, intercepting Boyle's pass and taking the ball back 17
yards down the left sideline for a touchdown. It was the first
of two picks for Floyd.

Cardinals cornerback Charles Gaines, who had an interception for
a touchdown against South Florida, also scored. He blocked a
punt after a muffed snap, scooped it up and ran 7 yards to open
the scoring. The Cardinals have outscored opponents 75-6 in the
opening 15 minutes of games this season. Gaines added a
second-quarter interception.

UConn's Boyle has eight interceptions and no touchdowns in his
four games since taking over from junior Chandler Whitmer.

The Huskies lone TD came on a 14-yard pass from backup Casey
Cochran to Kamal Abrams with 35 seconds left in the game, in
front of a mostly empty stadium.

Bridgewater led two second-quarter scoring drives. The first
went 64 yards, with the junior hitting all four of his passes,
including a 28-yard score to DeVante Parker, who found himself
wide open over the middle after cornerback Byron Jones fell down
in coverage.

The second, a 56-yarder, took just six plays. It opened with a
35-yard pass to tight end Gerald Christian, and ended with
Senorise Perry's 5-yard sweep around the right side. That gave
the Cardinals a 21-3 lead, and sent many of Connecticut's fans
to the exits at halftime.

UConn took the game's opening drive inside the Louisville 10
before tailback Martin Hyppolite fumbled. The Huskies also had
a 14-play first-half drive, which ended in a 35-yard field goal
with 14:54 left in the first half.

But the Cardinals held them to 58 yards rushing.

Louisville running back Dominique Brown, who ran for 125 yards
on just 18 carries in his first career start two weeks ago, had
only 29 yards against UConn. Perry added 27 and Bridgewater had
21.

UConn cornerback Taylor Mack made his first start since
September after missing four games with a shoulder injury, but
the Huskies were without starting safety Ty-Meer Brown, who
missed the game with a neck injury.
