Louisville Vs. FIU Final Score: Golden Panthers Upset Louisville, 24-17

The Fla. International Golden Panthers sent the Louisville Cardinals packing on Friday night, 24-17, for their first victory over a BCS program. The Cardinals made it interesting in the fourth quarter, especially in the final minutes of the game. After two drives that resulted in zero points, Will Stein led his Cardinals onto the field with just four minutes left in the game. Another drive looked dead in the water on 4th-and-19, but Stein completed a 24-yard pass and then threw five more completions in a row. The final throw was a 26-yard dazzling catch by DeVante Parker, who made it with double coverage on him.

Louisville was unable to come up with the onside kick. However, they did get one last chance following FIU's failure to get a first down. It failed.

While the fourth quarter was Louisville's time to shine (and fall short), the first half was all about Florida International. Winston Fraser read Will Stein, intercepted a pass and took it to the end zone on a 71-yard. Then quarterback Wesley Carroll found receiver T.Y. Hilton for two straight touchdowns, the first for 74 yards and the second for 83. Hilton caught in total seven passes for 201 yards.

Louisville Vs. FIU Score: Will Stein Threatens FIU, But Can't Deliver Points For Cardinals

The Louisville Cardinals ultimately came up short on the threat they built at the end of the third quarter. Will Stein finally broke through to FIU territory, but the drive was on the edge with a 3rd-and-12 situation. A pass interference call gave the Cardinals 15 yards and a fresh set of downs. A 15-yard play put them inside the red zone, but running back Jeremy Wright was unable to do anything on the next four rushes plays. The Panthers got the ball back when Wright came up short on 4th-and-1.

The Cardinals also faltered on their next drive. They started inside FIU territory, and Will Stein even made a 14-yard pass while under pressure and far back from the line of scrimmage. But then Stein followed that up by being sacked for a loss of 13 yards. Stein attempted one last long pass on fourth down, but it hit the ground and rolled into the end zone, incomplete.

Louisville Vs. FIU Score: Golden Panthers Keep Cardinals Down As 4th Quarter Begins

The Fla. International Golden Panthers and the Louisville Cardinals have entered a standstill in the second half of their Friday night game. The Golden Panthers did increase their lead by three points on a 29-yard field goal by Jack Griffin, but the battle in the trenches has resulted in a typical assault-retreat pattern. The Golden Panthers lead, 24-10.

T.Y. Hilton hasn't come up with as many exciting plays as he had in the first half, but he went over 200 receiving yards (201) in the second half. His quarterback, Wesley Carroll, has 249 passing yards. The rushing attack has been nonexistent, accounting for just 40 yards.

Will Stein and the Cardinals are threatening a sustained drive at the end of the third quarter. Will Stein rushed for 14 yards on third down to keep the drive alive and also added a 20-yard pass before the whistle blew.

Louisville Vs. FIU Score: Cardinals Battle Back, But Still Losing, 21-10

Don't count out the Louisville Cardinals just yet in their game against the Fla. International Golden Panthers. They are down, 21-10, at halftime, but momentum might be on their side. They closed out the second quarter with an impressive scoring drive.

Louisville quarterback Will Stein led the Cardinals down the field on a 12-play, 89-yard touchdown drive. Stein helped himself with two long completions of 21 and 31 yards on the drive. But to get into the Cardinals' 10-yard zone, Stein picked up 13 yards to reach the six-yard line. He found Michaelee Harris in the end zone for a six-yard score.

Still, the storyline of the first half has been T.Y. Hilton. The Golden Panther wide receiver has three receptions for 161 yards and two touchdowns. Hilton exploited a poor Louisville secondary for 74- and 83-yard touchdowns.
