Louisville kept their undefeated alive by coming out on top of a wild Big East contest against Cincinnati. Teddy Bridgewater passed for over 400 yards and he and Munchie Legaux were each able to put together late touchdown drives to send the game in to overtime. It was a wild fourth quarter as Louisville battled back against a Cincinnati defense that was looking gassed perhaps overdoing it between the third and fourth quarters by hopping all around the sideline. Long passing plays by both teams late in the quarter just added to the drama as Louisville finally took the lead, only to lose it moments later.
ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!?!?! #KegOfNails

In the overtime, Legaux tried to force something and was intercepted instead, giving Louisville a chance to end everything and reclaim the Keg of Nails for the first time since 2007. Lining up for the field goal, Butch Jones did what many coaches do and call a late timeout to ice the kicker. The decision may have cost Cincinnati the game, as the snap sailed above the holder. The game would have either gone to a second overtime, or perhaps Cincinnati could pick up the loose ball and run it in for a touchdown. Instead, Louisville got a second chance in the rainy conditions to boot a game-winning field goal. Naturally, they did and started celebrating the rivalry victory, remaining undefeated as well.
Senior Will Stein figured it was appropriate to celebrate winning the Keg of Nails by doing, what else, a keg stand!
