Bulls Lose To Louisville, Drop Fifth Game In A Row

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Teddy Bridgewater threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Eli Rogers with 1:35 left, and No. 16 Louisville remained perfect by edging South Florida 27-25 on Saturday for the Cardinals’ best start since 2006.

Louisville (7-0, 2-0 Big East) rallied after yielding 15 straight points to South Florida and a season-high 197 yards rushing.

B.J. Daniels threw three TD passes in the second half, the last one putting South Florida ahead 25-21 with 3:09 left. The Bulls had one last chance for the win, but Adrian Bushell intercepted Daniels’ last-gasp throw as time ran out, well short of the end zone.

South Florida (2-5, 0-3) has dropped five straight games. It has just one win in its last 12 conference games dating to last season.

Louisville finished with four sacks and a big goal-line stand late in the third quarter.
