LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Teddy Bridgewater threw a career-high five touchdown passes and No. 12 Louisville rallied once again, beating Temple 45-17 on Saturday.
The Cardinals (9-0, 4-0 Big East) fell behind for the sixth straight game as they took time to adjust to their first noon kickoff of the season. But while Louisville's defense and special teams were slow to get going, Bridgewater and the offense clicked right away.
Louisville scored on five of its first six possessions to take a 31-17 halftime lead. The Cardinals, off to their best start in school history, moved into a first-place tie with Rutgers.
Temple (3-5, 2-3) lost its third straight game and has been outscored 127-44 during that stretch.
Bridgewater completed 19 of 28 passes for 324 yards, a week after he threw for a career-best 416 yards against Cincinnati.
The Wizards released their 2018-19 five-game preseason schedule on Tuesday and it looks quite a bit like last year's did.
Once again, they will play the New York Knicks twice, once at home and once on the road. And once again, they will host the Guangzhou Long-Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association.
It all begins on Oct. 1 when the Wizards host the Knicks. Three of their five preseason games will be played at Capital One Arena.
Here is the full preseason schedule:
10/1 vs. Knicks
10/5 vs. Heat
10/8 at Knicks
10/10 at Pistons
10/12 vs. Guangzhou Long-Lions
The preseason schedule release comes on the heels of the full 82-game regular season reveal. That came out last week. You can see it here.

Local artist Taylor Kampa has taken her love for the Washington Capitals and turned it into works of art.
You can find paintings done by Kampa of Alex Ovechkin, Tom Wilson, Nicklas Backstrom, T.J. Oshie, John Carlson and Braden Holtby on display at Circa Chinatown – a restaurant neighboring Capital One Arena – along with other D.C. celebrities.
A professional artist for the last decade, Kampa told NHL.com that the pictures were "passion projects," and took about eight hours to finish. She became a fan of the Caps after she began dating her now-husband back in 2009.
Her work has even caught the eye of The Great Eight. After posting a video to Instagram of her painting Ovechkin hoisting the Stanley Cup, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner liked and commented on it.
"I almost died," Kampa said.
"It has been amazing sharing something that I am excited about that resonates with the people in my city," Kampa said. "I've been painting these portraits for a long time, so it's awesome to have them seen by so many people."
Kampa will also create paintings for the Capitals foundation's annual Casino Night fundraiser next year.
