Tigers Challenge Louisville but Mistakes Costly in 35-28 Defeat

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

Friday night

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.
