No. 16 Louisville edges Cincinnati
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – John Wallace kicked a 30-yard field goal in overtime to lift No. 16 Louisville to a 34-31 football victory over Cincinnati on Friday night after an attempt to ice the redshirt kicker went horribly wrong for the Bearcats.
Cincinnati got the ball first in OT but Terrell Floyd intercepted Munchie Legaux’s floater in the end zone and the Cardinals drove 12 yards to set up Wallace’s kick.
Bearcats coach Butch Davis called timeout right before the field-goal attempt, and the high snap went through the holder’s hands. Davis just shrugged and Wallace calmly drilled the ball on the next snap through the uprights and Louisville won.
Teddy Bridgewater connected with DeVante Parker for two terrific touchdowns after the Cardinals (8-0, 3-0 Big East) fell behind 24-14 with 10:26 left in the third quarter.
The Bearcats fell to 5-2, 1-1.
