Louisville 34 Army 10

The Army Cadets fought hard for two quarters but in the end it was another cloudy day for the men from West Point. The Louisville Cardinals gained over 600 yards total offense and went on to defeat Army 34-10 in a game played at Papa John's Stadium in Louisville, Ky.

The Cardinals scored on their first drive with a 50-yard pass from quarterback Stefan LeFors to J.R. Russelwith which setup a 22-yard field goal by Nate Smith.

A Louisville fumble enabled Army to kick a field goal of their own and tie the game at 3-3. The field goal was from 22 yards by Anthony Zurisko.

A 10-yard touchdown run by Eric Shelton at the start of the second quarter put the Cardinals up 10-3. Shelton went on to rush for 70 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Army countered with a 33-yard interception return by Brian Hill to tie the game at 10. Hill had a good day for the Cadets, forcing two fumbles and getting six tackles.

Louisville answered back swiftly with more excellent passing from LeFors. The drive ended in a 32-yard run by Micheal Bush to put the Cardinals up 17-10. LeFors finished with a career high 406 yards passing for the game.

The third quarter was all Louisville and Eric Shelton. Shelton rushed for two more touchdowns to cap off long Cardinal drives which left no time for Army's offense to come back again. Army attempted to jump-start its offense in the second half by replacing starting quarterback Zac Dahman with Matt Silva. Silva could manage no better and threw a game high 3 interceptions.

Army's record falls to 0-6. They host winless East Carolina (0-6) next Saturday.

Louisville's record improves to 5-1. Tulane (3-3) comes to Cardinal Stadium.
