LOUISVILLE, KY – Dominique Brown rushed for 143 yards and a touchdown as Louisville shut down Miami to win its ACC debut 31-13 on Monday night.
The Cardinals led just 14-13 after the Hurricanes kicked a field goal early in the fourth quarter, but pulled away thanks to a tough defensive display and the hard running of Brown.
In a battle of first-time starters, Louisville’s Will Gardner outplayed Miami’s Brad Kaaya. Gardner threw a pair of touchdowns, while Kaaya was picked off twice.
Scott Graham and Kelly Stouffer called the action on Westwood One Sports.
