Thursday night our University of Louisville Cardinals defeated the Scarlet Knights from Rutgers 24-10 in what will likely be the last meeting ever between the two schools. Say what you may about Rutgers and how bad of a football team they were 10 years ago but they really had stepped up to play the part of conference rival since we got into the Big East/AAC. Teddy Bridgewater went 21-31 for 310 yards and 2 TD while throwing a very rare INT, only his second of the season. Senorise Perry added to the offensive attack with 13 rushes for 104 yards and 1 TD with his longest rush for 42 yards. Louisville’s Defense come up huge with 8 sacks and forced Rutgers QB Gary Nova to be….Gary Nova as he threw 4 INT’s. Calvin Pryor III led the Defense with 14 total tackles. Below are some videos and pictures we got from the game, enjoy!

All summer when people would talk about this Louisville offense and you got to the topic of Wide Receiver, who were the names you heard? Parker, Copeland, Rogers, Quick, Clark, maybe even Harris? And yes, that is a ridiculous group of receivers, no doubt. But did anyone ever mention Kai De La Cruz (formerly Kai Dominguez) ??? Probably not, and he showed on Sunday that he is here to be included in that list of names. I will admit it, I didn’t even have anything to say about him in my wide receiver breakdown to begin the season. I had not seen too much of him, and UofL’s site did not even have much information. So I just chalked him up to maybe a special teams player that may catch a pass or two in games.
