The University of Louisville football team pulled off a victory on Saturday.
It wasn't pretty but still a victory, beating Boston College 17-14 after the Cardinals' defense held the Eagles to just 79 total yards of offense and only four first downs in a game that featured 21 punts and 30 tackles for a loss.
"A win, I'm excited for us," U of L coach Bobby Petrino said. "The thing that I am most pleased is that our defense came back. We worked hard all week. They came out and played fast and physical."
Lamar Jackson ran for a touchdown and completed 15 of 25 passes for 230 yards but threw a pair of interceptions. Reggie Bonnafon led the Cardinals with 56 yards rushing, while Jeremy Smith ran for 51 yards.
Jamari Staples had four catches for 96 yards to lead the Cardinals.
Louisville also scored on a 46-yard fumble recovery by Sheldon Rankins and a 34-yard field goal by John Wallace. The Cardinals finished with 365 total yards on offense.
James Burgess led the Cardinals with 10 tackles, while Keith Kelsey had seven and 4.5 tackles for a loss. Trevon Young had three sacks, while Kelsey, Trumaine Washington, Devonte Fields, Pio Vatuvei and James Hearns all had one apiece.
