04/13/2018 10:40 PM

The Louisville football team took part in the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Spring Game Friday night in front of over 17,000 fans inside Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

The fans saw the Red Team beat the White Team 42-13.

The Red Team was led by quarterback Jawon Pass, who accounted for four touchdowns in the contest.

Pass went 26-of-37 for 342 yards through the air, along with three passing touchdowns and one interception. Meanwhile, on the ground, Pass rushed for 11 yards on five carries, including one rushing touchdown.

After the game, UofL head coach Bobby Petrino talked about what he hopes to see out of Pass:

One of Pass’ big targets on Friday night was wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick caught eight passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns.

Fitzpatrick was also a big weapon for previous UofL quarterback Lamar Jackson. He compared Jackson and Pass after the Spring Game:

Another big target for Pass on Friday was tight end Micky Crum. Crum finished the game with eight receptions for 90 receiving yards and one touchdown.

Meanwhile, the White Team was led by quarterback Malik Cunningham. Cunningham ended up going 13-of-16 through the air for 99 yards and one touchdown. On the ground, he led his team in rushing with 52 total yards on eight carries.
