FIU QB, RB injured
Teddy Bridgewater passed for two touchdowns and ran for another score in the return to his home city, and No. 20 Louisville remained unbeaten by holding off Florida International 28-21 on Saturday night.
Bridgewater played quarterback for Northwestern High School before playing under center for Louisivlle.
Senorise Perry rushed for 74 yards for the Cardinals (4-0), who trailed for the first time this season before controlling the second half and avenging last season's 24-17 loss to FIU.
Darian Mallary and Jake Medlock both rushed for touchdowns for the Panthers (1-3), whose losses have come against teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference, Conference USA and now the Big East. FIU starts Sun Belt play next week at Louisiana-Lafayette.
Mallary and Medlock both left the game with injuries, and top FIU running back Kedrick Rhodes also missed the game with a right leg injury.
