Louisville vs. Florida International: Saturday, noon
Through the Louisville Cardinals' first three games, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has put up gaudy numbers. He has already thrown for 1,002 yards and 10 touchdowns while tossing just one interception.
However, Saturday's game against the FIU Golden Panthers could prove tougher than anticipated for Bridgewater. Florida International ranks 41st in the country in pass defense, giving up an average of just 196 yards through the air.
That ranking is somewhat misleading though, as the Golden Panthers are 0-3 this season, having lost by a combined score of 115-23.
With all three games being blowouts, teams haven't had to pass against FIU.
That should end up being the case again this week. Louisville is, far and away, the best team that the Golden Panthers have faced. If Louisville builds up a big lead early, don't expect Bridgewater to pass that much or even stay in the game past the first half.
