No. 25 UofL romps 32-14 over rival UK

GLASGOW — Not known for lavishing praise, Louisville coach Charlie Strong found himself acting out of character.

He was happy to do it after his No. 25 Cardinals thoroughly beat in-state rival Kentucky 32-14 in their opener. Offense sparked much of his elation, as the Cardinals outgained the Wildcats 466-373 and scored on five of their first seven possessions.

Strong needed to see that from his offense after the unit struggled at times last season. What he got was complete domination.

“It was just amazing to see how we just clicked on offense,” Strong said of a team that scored touchdowns on its first three drives. “(Quarterback Teddy) Bridgewater had an unbelievable day. We also had two running backs to rush for over 100 yards. I told our team I have to give credit to our offensive line because they did a great job of blocking up front. They don’t get enough credit.”
