Louisville takes out Missouri State

Louisville moves to 2-0 on the season with a 35-7 win over Missouri State before 47,553 fans at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium on Saturday.

Teddy Bridgewater kept No. 23 Louisville's offense clicking Saturday by passing for a career-high 344 yards and two touchdowns, while the defense stifled Missouri State in a 35-7 rout.

Despite a statistical falloff from last week's 19 of 21 effort against Kentucky, Bridgewater still completed 30 of 39 passing attempts. He again involved others and often, with seven of his 10 targets catching at least three passes.

Eli Rogers led the way with six receptions, while Charles Gaines had a game-high 73 yards. Tight ends Nate Nord and Ryan Hubbell caught TDs as the Cardinals totaled 475 yards, eight more than last week.

Missouri State (0-2) did little against Louisville's defense, gaining just 222 yards, with its lone touchdown of the season coming late in the first half. Ashton Glaser was just 14 of 23 passing for 125 yards with a sack and an interception.
