Sep 7, 2013; Louisville, KY, USA; Louisville Cardinals quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (5) looks to pass against the Eastern Kentucky Colonels during the second half of play at Papa John

 

The rise of the Cardinals started when Teddy Bridgewater arrived on the Louisville campus, and in just two years, he’s become one of the best QBs in all of college football, and already looks like a lock for the top-10 in next year’s NFL Draft. Now, he’s on the verge of taking the Cardinals to another BCS game, an undefeated season and earning himself a Heisman Trophy.

It was in 2012 that he became one of the most recognizable figures in college football. He completed 287/419 passes (68.5%) for 3,718 yards and he threw 27 TDs to only 8 interceptions. Louisville’s record finished 11-2, including a program-altering win vs. the Florida Gators in the Sugar Bowl.

This led to bigger expectations entering this year, and thus far, Bridgewater has done nothing to disappoint. Through two games, he’s thrown for 752 yards, an FBS-best nine touchdowns and a 76.7% completion rate in leading the Cards to a 2-0 start.

But with one of the weakest schedules in college football, there aren’t many opportunities for him to play on a national stage against a quality opponent.
