South Florida vs. Louisville 2012: Cardinals take 14-3 halftime lead over Bulls

The Louisville Cardinals lead the South Florida Bulls 14-3 after one half of play at Louisville's Papa John's Stadium.

Cardinals quarterback Teddy Bridgewater continues to shine for Louisville. The sophomore from Miami is perfect on the afternoon, completing all 11 of his passes for 125 yards. He also leads his team in rushing with 48 yards on four carries.

South Florida scored on their opening drive to take an early lead after Maikon Bonani nailed a 36-yard field goal, but have not seen the scoreboard since due to turnovers and difficulties converting third downs. Louisville took the lead on a 1-yard touchdown rush by Senorise Perry, and added to that lead a few drives later with Jeremy Wright's 11-yard touchdown run.

South Florida's B.J. Daniels, one of the all-time offense leaders in Big East history, has had difficulty moving the ball this afternoon. Daniels is just 6-for-13 for 66 yards, and has accumulated minus -2 yards on the ground through the first half.

Louisville received the ball to open the second half.
