With the NCAA football season underway it’s not too early to start looking at who may be going first overall in the next NFL draft and Teddy Bridgewater is making his bid to be the first quarterback taken in the 2014 NFL draft.

The Louisville Cardinal’s quarterback threw for 355 yards and a career high 5 touchdowns in the Cardinals 49-7 route of the Ohio Bobcats.

Bridgewater showed no rust and picked up where he left off after last seasons Sugar Bowl. He completed 23 of 28 passes as he led the Louisville offence to over 600 yards.

Louisville finishes off September with some lacklustre competition as they play the likes of Eastern Kentucky, Kentucky and Florida International. The hot start by Bridgewater and Louisville will be key to see where the team will be ranked after a slew of easy games in September, but hopefully the teams first game will go a long way in Teddy Bridgewater’s Heisman Trophy bid.

Bridgewater will likely continue to put up head turning numbers as he leads the Louisville offence through the NCAA season, but the biggest question is whether or not anyone will actually be watching. His play should certainly put him in the Heisman debate, but if he doesn’t win it likely wont be because of his play on the field.
