    Orlando, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - In what was likely his final game at Louisville, junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater put an exclamation point on a stellar collegiate career with the Cardinals.

    Bridgewater threw for a career-high 447 yards and three touchdowns while also rushing for a score, and the Louisville defense stifled Miami-Florida en route to a 36-9 triumph in the Russell Athletic Bowl.

    Billed by most as the top quarterback prospect for the 2014 NFL Draft, Bridgewater completed 35-of-45 passes and became Louisville's all-time leader for TD tosses in a single season with his 31st scoring strike of the year.

    Louisville (12-1) held the Hurricanes to just 173 total yards, including a minuscule 13 on the ground, and an 0-for-11 mark on third-down efficiency, as the Cardinals secured their second 12-win season in school history and first since 2006.

    Louisville's stout defense caused problems for Stephen Morris throughout the game, with the senior signal-caller completing just 12-of-27 passes for 160 yards for the Hurricanes (9-4), who were making their first postseason appearance since 2010 following a self-imposed two-year bowl ban due to improper benefits from a booster.

    Gus Edwards found the end zone from two yards out early in the fourth for Miami's only offensive score of the game.
