The newly anointed cardinal “BOOM” had hit all the major sports team at UofL this week. It was assumed we would see a boom on the Football field tonight and we did…kind of. The Cardinal D BOOMed when we needed them too as the D held high-powered Houston to under 200 total yards. On Offense Dominique Brown ran for a career-high of 137 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score in the third quarter, and No. 19 Louisville held on to beat Houston 20-13 on Saturday night. Teddy Bridgewater added 203 yards passing and an uncharacteristic TouchDown total of zero. Devante Parker had 4 catches for 72 yards. Preston Brown added nine tackles on Defense and Roy Philon, Marcus Smith & Lorenzo Mauldin all had a sack. John Wallace was 2-2 on Field Goals and 2-2 on extra points.
The game marked Louisville’s first Saturday night contest in five years and its first meeting against Houston since a 65-27 victory in 2004 – their second straight 60-point performance against the Cougars. Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater had his streak of 21 games with a touchdown pass end. The Cards play Memphis at Noon on Saturday at PJCS.
