Louisville Vs. FIU Score: T.Y. Hilton Breaks Through Cardinals Defense, Picks Up Two TD Receptions

The Florida International Golden Panthers have kept the Louisville Cardinals silent well into the second quarter of their Friday night game. Can they pull off the upset?

The Fla. International Golden Panthers are showing it where it counts the most in their game against the Louisville Cardinals: in the score column. Florida International has jumped out to a 21-3 lead over the Cardinals in the second quarter.

The Golden Panthers first put points on the board when linebacker Winston Fraser picked off Will Stein at his own 29-yard line and returned it 71 yards for the touchdown. Fraser read Stein well on the play, never taking his eyes off of the quarterback's.

Louisville running back Jeremy Wright has rushed for over 100 yards, but the offense had to settle for a Chris Philpott 30-yard field goal early in the second quarter. But FIU's Wesley Carroll found T.Y. Hilton on their next two drives for long scores. He blazed his way through the secondary for a 74-yard score and then found a seam for an 83-yard touchdown reception.

That the Panthers are ahead of the Cardinals shouldn't be surprising. That they hold an 18-point lead well into the second quarter, though, is.
