Cincinnati went into Papa John's Cardinal Stadium to take down the undefeated Louisville Cardinals. They almost did it. However, almost doesn't cut it when a Keg of Nails is on the line.
For the first time in five years, the Keg of Nails will rest somewhere else. The Bearcats now (5-2, 1-1 Big East) gave Louisville all they could handle, and, in the end, the game needed overtime to determine the winner.
It was an interception thrown by Munchie Legaux that hurt the Bearcats and ultimately it was the field goal kicker of the Cardinals that sealed the Bearcats fate. The final score was 34-31 in favor of Louisville.
There were many lessons in the loss to the Cardinals. Let's take a look at what was learned.
