Orlando, FL - Teddy Bridgewater threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score in No. 18 Louisville's 36-9 victory over Miami on Saturday night in the Russell Athletic Bowl.

The Cardinals (12-1) spotted Miami (9-4) an early 2-0 lead, then dominated the rest of the way, racking up 554 total yards to the Hurricanes' 174.

Bridgewater was 35 for 45 for career-high 447 yards.

The win was the second straight bowl victory for Louisville and also marks the program's second 12-win season.

With Cardinals' fans chanting "Teddy! Teddy!" at times throughout the game Bridgewater, projected to be a top NFL draft pick if he comes out this summer, set a school record with 31 touchdown passes this season.

The Miami native also tied the school record with his 27th victory as Louisville's starter.

The Hurricanes, playing in their first bowl game since 2010, haven't had a bowl victory since 2006, losing four straight.
