The Train Keeps Rollin' Well New Mexico State is not supposed to be very good. However, noone told the Louisville players that in the first quarter. NMSU kept the Cardinals scoreless in the opening quarter and scored first. The score came on a long fumble recovery after QB Teddy Bridgewater fumbled after his best play of the day to that point. The second quarter proved to be much more fruitful. The Cards finally got into rhythm and sustained some drives. Then they were able to strike on some big plays. At the end of the half NMSU had the ball but failed to score. Unfortunately for them they left some time on the clock and Lousiville capitalized with a big play to really bust the game open. The foot was taken off the gas in the second half when it was all but decided. Teddy Bridgewater tore off a few big runs by turning what could have been short gains into huge plays with his pure athleticism. The backups got to play in the fourth as well and the backup QB went 1 for 1 throwing a TD pass to a wide open TE on a 3rd and long play. The Cards now head into their rare Double Bye Week with a lot of momentum and are right outside the top25 at 5-0 with a chance to break in while idle. After the byes they will begin conference play against Rutgers at home.
