Louisville, Ky. • Teddy Bridgewater threw a career-high five touchdown passes and No. 12 Louisville rallied once again, beating Temple 45-17 on Saturday.

The Cardinals (9-0, 4-0 Big East) fell behind for the sixth straight game, taking time to adjust to their first noon kickoff of the season. But while Louisville's defense and special teams were slow to get going, Bridgewater and the offense clicked right away.

Louisville scored on five of its first six possessions to take a 31-17 halftime lead. The Cardinals, off to their best start in school history, moved into a first-place tie with Rutgers.

Temple (3-5, 2-3) lost its third straight game and has been outscored 127-44 during that stretch.

Bridgewater completed 19 of 28 passes for 324 yards a week after he threw for a career-best 416 yards against Cincinnati. —
