LOUISVILLE, Ky. • Teddy Bridgewater threw three touchdowns in the first half, and No. 19 Louisville scored on its first six possessions then had to hold North Carolina with a late goal-line stand to come away with a 39-34 victory Saturday.

Bryn Renner settled down from a rough first half to rally the Tar Heels (1-2) from a 36-7 deficit with four touchdowns in the second half, including a screen pass to Romar Morris for a 50-yard touchdown with 1 minute, 45 seconds remaining.

North Carolina's Norkeithus Otis then forced Adrian Bushell to fumble the ensuing kickoff, and the Tar Heels recovered at the Cardinals' 10. But after moving to the 3, North Carolina was penalized for a false start, and Renner's final pass was broken up by Andrew Johnson in the end zone two plays later.

Bridgewater threw for 218 of his 279 yards in the first half for the Cardinals (3-0). He finished 23 of 28 for 279 yards.

Renner finished with five TD passes. —
