No. 7 Louisville Tops Kentucky 27-13
(LEXINGTON, Ky.) — Senorise Perry rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns leading No. 7 Louisville past Kentucky, 27-13 Saturday.
The Cardinals overcame a sluggish first-half, that ended with Louisville up 10-3, by compiling 339 second-half yards.
“I knew eventually we would pick up on offense,” Louisville head coach Charlie Strong said. “We just have too many good players not to.”
One of them is quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater had one of his less impressive games but still completed 16-of-28 passes for 250 yards, one touchdown and 35 rushing yards in the win.
The touchdown pass was to junior receiver DeVonte Parker. Parker finished the game with four catches for 50 yards.
Meanwhile Kentucky held strong for a half, but couldn’t match Louisville’s offense in the final two quarters.
The Wildcats lost their starting quarterback Maxwell Smith in the third quarter to a shoulder injury.
Sophomore Jalen Whitlow replaced Smith and completed 8-of-17 passes for 105 yards, one touchdown and an interception.
