Temple vs. Louisville: Cardinals pull away 45-17 off two Owls turnovers

Chris Coyer's second and third fumbles of the day gave Louisville the opportunity to score twice, and Teddy Bridgewater responded by throwing another two touchdowns to put the Cardinals up 45-17.

Bridgewater now has five touchdowns and 324 yards passing on the day. The score was tied 17-17, but Louisville has scored four touchdowns with no response from Temple.

Louisville only picked up one first down before punting on the first drive of the half, but Chris Coyer fumbled the ball on a zone read to give Cardinals the ball right back. Teddy Bridgewater responded with a play action pass on a crossing pattern to DeVante Parker for a 25-yard touchdown, Bridgewater's fourth of the day, to put the Cardinals up 38-17.

The Owls tried to force the ball through the air down three touchdowns, but were forced to punt after losing two yards on three plays. Jeremy Wright had an 18-yard run for Louisville on the next possession, but a bootleg for Bridgewater ended up with a sack for a major loss of yardage, ending Louisville's drive. However, another Coyer fumble set the Cardinals up in good field position. Wright ran 32 yards to the four-yard line after a false start penalty, and after another penalty, Bridgewater threw a nine-yard pass to Andrell Smith with the third quarter winding down.
