Louisville is off to a 9-0 start - the best in school history - after rolling over Temple 45-17 before 44.609 fans at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

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 as they took time to adjust to their first noon kickoff of the season. But while Louisvilleā€™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.

Plenty more later from Cardinal Authority.
