(TAMPA, Fla.) — There would be no letdown for Louisville on Saturday as the Cardinals defated South Florida 34-3 on Saturday.
Last week, Louisville suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of Central Florida, knocking them out of the top-10 to number 20.
But against South Florida, the team responded as Bridgewater completed 25 of 29 passes for 344 yards and three touchdowns.
“It’s all about mental toughness and being able to bounce back, and we were able to bounce back,” Louisville head coach Charlie Strong said. “It’s always good to see your team come together. We knew what we had to go get accomplished, and they were able to do it. … You can’t let that one game beat you twice, and we weren’t going to let that game last week beat us again.”
The Cardinals’ defense came to play as well. They held South Florida without a touchdown, and allowed them to gain just 133 yards of total offense.
