No. 14 Louisville
34, Cincinnati 31 (OT): Terell Floyd intercepted a pass and John Wallace hit the game-winning field goal in overtime as the Cardinal remained unbeaten with a dramatic comeback victory over the visiting Bearcats.

DeVante Parker caught four passes for 120 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns while Teddy Bridgewater threw for a career-high 416 yards for Louisville (8-0, 3-0 Big East), which ended Cincinnati’s four-game winning streak in this series.

George Winn rushed for 175 yards and Ralph Abernathy rushed for two touchdowns for the Bearcats.
