UofL FOOTBALL | Rally comes up short as Cards fall to Pitt
11/21/2015 07:56 PM
Louisville’s four game winning streak has come to an end. Pitt quarterback Nate Peterman threw four touchdowns as the Panthers outscored UofL, 45-34.
The Cards made a game out of what looked to be a blowout. Trailing 42-17 late in the half, Head Coach Bobby Petrino changed quarterbacks, pulling starter Kyle Bolin for one time first stringer Lamar Jackson. The plan worked as the freshman led the Cards on a pair of touchdown drives, although Louisville’s rally eventually came up short.
So once again, the Cards might have a quarterback issue. Jackson threw for 141 yards. Kyle Bolin for 175 yards, with a pair of touchdowns and an interception.
Louisville passed for 355 total yards, with Jamari Staples leading the way. The wide out had 9 catches for 194 yards and a touchdown. What did UofL in however, was a lack of a running game. Jackson was the leading rusher with 19 yards, and all told the Cards wound up with minus one (-1) yards rushing for the game.
ACC leading pass catcher Tyler Boyd led Pitt with 11 catches for 103 yards and a touchdown. Panthers running back Qadree Ollison rushed for 152 yards with a touchdown.
With the loss, UofL falls to 6-5 overall, 5-3 in the ACC, while Pitt improves to 8-3, 7-1 in the conference. Louisville finishes the regular season by playing at Kentucky, next weekend, Saturday November 28th at noon. The Cats will be in a must win scenario to try and become bowl eligible.
