No. 8 Louisville routs E Kentucky 44-7

Teddy Bridgewater threw for 397 yards and four touchdowns, and eighth-ranked Louisville routed Eastern Kentucky 44-7 Saturday on a day the Cardinals' defense just missed a shutout for a second straight week.
    
Linebacker Preston Brown had two sacks for Louisville, and Calvin Pryor had an interception as Louisville limited Eastern Kentucky to 76 yards total offense in the first half.
    
The Cardinals (2-0) needed the defensive plays. Following the noon kickoff, Louisville settled for a pair of field goals from John Wallace after turnovers gave the offense short fields. The Cardinals also settled for a third field goal in the third quarter despite reaching Eastern Kentucky's 4.
    
Bridgewater hit his first five passes to continue his strong start on the season and for his Heisman Trophy candidacy. He tossed TD passes to Damian Copeland, two to DeVante Parker and Gerald Christian while connecting with eight different receivers.
