CINCINNATI (AP) Teddy Bridgewater gave No. 19 Louisville a fantastic farewell to its Ohio River rivalry and its latest conference.
The elusive quarterback pulled off a couple of great escapes during a fourth-quarter rally, and the Cardinals made their farewell to the American Athletic Conference by beating Cincinnati 31-24 in overtime on Thursday night.
"Coach tells us all the time to ride the wave," said Bridgewater, who was 23 of 37 for 255 yards with three touchdowns on a wet, raw night. "We rode it. Then Cincinnati rode it for a while, but we knew we would ride it again and we did."
