Cardinals survive scare from Memphis, 35-28
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Johnny Patrick returned a fumble 21 yards
for a touchdown in the fourth quarter and blocked a field goal to
set up another score in Louisville's 35-28 victory over Memphis on
Trent Guy returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown and caught
a 43-yard scoring pass from Hunter Cantwell to help the Cardinals
(3-2) survive against their former Conference USA rival.
Memphis quarterback Arkelon Hall threw for 350 yards and
completed a rare trifecta - throwing for two scores while adding a
touchdown rushing and receiving - but couldn't lead the Tigers
(3-4) to their fourth straight win.
Memphis rolled up 481 yards against the nation's ninth-ranked
defense, but the Cardinals made up for it with a pair of
spectacular plays on special teams and a couple of late stops to
overcome an uncharacteristically sluggish offense, primarily due to a strong Tigers Defense.
Memphis gets back into Conference USA competition, next game October 18th at East Carolina.
