You know how in pro rasslin' video games you can do an opponent's taunt, and it'll fill up your special meter, bringing you one step closer to doing one of your seven finishing moves, of which you'll need like 18 in a row in order to pin your opponent? Yeah, you know.
That's kind of what Teddy Bridgewater's doing here, I think, as he does the UC cheer along with Cincinnati fans behind him. He doesn't even have to look, because he is a field general. Also he's a fun-lovin' dude who likes to participate in neat things. And the final Keg of Nails game is a neat thing.
Bridgewater's 1-1 in his career against Cincinnati. This is both likely his last regular-season college game and Louisville's last game against Cincinnati for a long time.
(After this, Teddy went out and assembled a near-immediate touchdown drive, which is one of his many finishing moves.)
