                   === No. 7 Louisville pummels FIU 72-0 ===
 
 Louisville,  KY (Sports  Network) - Teddy Bridgewater threw for 212 yards with
 four  touchdowns  to  power  seventh-ranked  Louisville  to  a  72-0  rout  of
 overmatched FIU at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.
 
 Bridgewater  played three  quarters and completed 17-of-22 passes. Six went to
 DeVante Parker, who had 74 yards and two scores in the lopsided triumph.
 
 "It  was  just a great  overall performance in all  three phases of the game,"
 Bridgewater  said. "We  just went out today and competed and played a complete
 game."
 
 Senorise  Perry, Dominique  Brown and Michael Dyer each had rushing scores for
 Louisville  (4-0), which was coming off a solid road win at Kentucky last week
 and wrapped up its non-conference slate. The Cardinals will take next Saturday
 off  before their  first American Athletic Conference matchup at Temple in two
 weeks.
 
 FIU  (0-4) was  shut out  for the  second  time in  three weeks  and has  been
 outscored by a combined 187-23 in its four losses this season.
 
 The  Panthers came away with a 24-17 win at Louisville two years ago, but were
 never  in  this one.  FIU trailed 38-0  at halftime and  managed just 33 yards
 offensively in the opening 30 minutes.
 
 "We  had  a tough day doing  everything...throwing the ball, running the ball,
 blocking, and catching," FIU head coach Ron Turner said. "It's where we are."
 
 Louisville  dominated the first quarter, holding FIU to just seven yards while
 opening  a  10-0 lead. Bridgewater threw  a 3-yard touchdown pass to Parker on
 the  Cardinals' first possession, and John Wallace kicked a 26-yard field goal
 to cap the second series.
 
 The Cardinals poured it on with four second-quarter touchdowns.
 
 Perry  reached  the end zone  on a  26-yard run early  in the period and Brown
 accounted for 78 yards on two carries for the next Louisville score, following
 a  77-yard jaunt with a 1-yard touchdown to make it 24-0 with 9:18 left in the
 half.  Bridgewater threw a 9-yard scoring strike to tight end Gerald Christian
 and  added a 6-yard connection to Parker for a 38-point cushion heading to the
 break.
 
 The  carnage  continued at  the start  of the second  half when Charles Gaines
 returned  the opening kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown. Bridgewater played two
 more  offensive  series and threw a  34-yard TD pass  to Eli Rogers for a 51-0
 spread after the extra point was blocked and guided a 35-yard drive that ended
 in a 3-yard scoring run by Dyer with 1:35 left in the third quarter.
 
 Backup  quarterback Will  Gardner tossed  an  11-yard TD  strike to  Michaelee
 Harris  and Brandon  Radcliff ran  nine yards  for a  score in  the fourth  to
 account for the final margin.
 
 Louisville's defense  yielded a  school-record  30 yards overall  and just two
 first downs. The Cardinals, meanwhile, totaled 464 yards of offense.
 
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 Parker  has caught  a touchdown pass in  10 straight games dating back to last
 season  ...  The coaches agreed to  play with a  running clock for much of the
 second  half ... Louisville has now won two of the three meetings, including a
 28-21 triumph at FIU last year.
