Study Hall: Louisville 31, Cincinnati 24

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Advanced stats from Louisville's 31-24 win at Cincinnati last Thursday night.

Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

Really, really even game. Louisville's offensive line did well in run blocking and not-so-well in pass blocking, and in the end, turnovers and Louisville's slightly better efficiency made the difference. And, you know, Teddy Bridgewater doing things. From this week's Numerical:

Yards per pass attempt for Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater in what was probably his final regular season game as the Cardinals' quarterback. Louisville beat Cincinnati in overtime, 31-24, but it could have been a rather unmemorable performance for the talented junior. But if not for some incredible plays late, the Cardinals wouldn't have won at all.
