Louisville's Parker has another 100-yard game

University of Louisville senior All-American DeVante Parker missed the first seven games of the season but has returned with a bang for the Cardinals. Parker had his third 100-yard game since returning on Saturday night in a 38-19 win over Boston College.

University of Louisville senior DeVante Parker only had one catch for 16 yards in the second half of the Cardinals' 38-19 win over Boston College.

But he did more than enough in the first half.

Parker carried the Cardinals early on and finished with eight catches for 144 yards, including the go-ahead touchdown on a 29-yard reception from Reggie Bonnafon in the final minute of the second quarter.

"He's amazing," U of L coach Bobby Petrino said. "That touchdown catch he made right before the half was one of those you just stand there and say, 'Wow.'

"It's nice to have him back I can tell you that."

In just three games back from his foot injury, Parker has 24 catches for 490 yards and one TD. He had 132 yards in his first game against North Carolina State and then added 214 yards against Florida State.

Parker now has five straight 100-yard games dating back to last season.

"The foot (injury) is still lingering with me but I can fight through it," Parker said. "I am just glad that I am doing what I am doing to help my team win."

Parker is now No. 5 all-time in school history with 2,410 career yards and ranks third all-time with 29 career TDs.
