LOUISVILLE, KY. (AP) - Teddy Bridgewater passed for three touchdowns, Victor Anderson rushed for 93 yards and a score and Louisville's defense stuffed Syracuse in an emotional 27-10 win on
Louisville (4-4, 2-1 Big East) got a visit from Anthony Conner, who broke his neck against Rutgers last week, in the locker room before the game and showed a lot of emotion in a big-play first
quarter that helped the Cardinals to consecutive Big East Conference wins for the first time since 2006.
Bridgewater's scoring passes of 42 yards to DeVante Parker and 2 yards to Josh Chichester spurred the Cardinals to their most points this season and gave Louisville's defense just enough cushion. The Cardinals held the Orange (5-3, 1-2) to a season-low 246 total yards a week after Syracuse knocked off then-No. 11 West Virginia 49-23 and Anderson iced it with a 61-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter.
