Recap: FIU vs. Louisville

Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Will Gardner threw for 295 yards and two touchdowns as the Louisville Cardinals routed the FIU Panthers, 34-3, in a non-conference clash at FIU Stadium.

Gardner completed 16-of-28 pass attempts for the Cardinals (3-1). James Quick caught Gardner's two touchdown passes and had a game-high 174 yards on seven receptions for the game.

Alex McGough struggled under center for the Panthers (1-3), completing just 5- of-13 pass attempts and throwing two interceptions. E.J. Hilliard fared a little better, completing 8-of-12 attempts, the pair combining for only 117 yards while being sacked five times.

Kickoff was delayed for just over an hour due to severe storms in the area.

Three-and-a-half minutes in, L.J. Scott ran across the goal line from a yard out to open the scoring for the Cardinals.

Louisville added to its lead, but not until midway through the second quarter, after Gerod Holliman intercepted McGough, returning the ball 32 yards for a touchdown to double his team's advantage, 14-0.

The Cardinals kept rolling before the end of the half, as Quick caught a 74- yard touchdown pass with 2:07 left and then, after an FIU three-and-out, a 37- yard TD grab with 1:22 to play before the break.

As time expired in the opening half, Austin Taylor got the Panthers on the scoreboard with a 28-yard field goal, making the score 28-3.

In the third quarter, John Wallace converted two field goals for the Cardinals, from 40 yards and 33 yards, making it 34-3.

FIU, which converted only 3-of-16 on third down and registered 205 yards of total offense, entered the week ranked 116th nationally with a mere 285.3 ypg and was 124th in the FBS with just 22.2 percent success on third-down attempts.
