Louisville Routs Miami

September 17, 2006|From the Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville came up with one of its biggest victories even though it lost Heisman hopeful Brian Brohm to a hand injury.

Brohm threw for 181 yards and a touchdown to lead the 12th-ranked Cardinals to a dominating 31-7 victory over No. 17 Miami on Saturday before getting knocked out of the game.

Backup quarterback Hunter Cantwell finished off the Hurricanes, who are 1-2 for the first time since 1997. Cantwell threw for 113 yards and a touchdown after Brohm went out because of sprained ligaments in his right (throwing) hand.

The Hurricanes started the day stomping on the Cardinals logo at midfield but ended it with their worst road loss in three years. Miami quarterback Kyle Wright threw for 278 yards but spent most of the second half running from a fierce Louisville pass rush that sacked him several times and harassed him countless others.

The Cardinals (3-0) rallied from an early deficit to take a 10-7 lead at the half on a 56-yard touchdown pass from Brohm to Mario Urrutia.

After surgery today, Brohm will sit out three to six weeks.
