Louisville Finishes Season 5-7

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Mike Teel threw for 447 yards and
matched a Big East record with seven touchdown passes, and Rutgers
dismantled Louisville 63-14 on Thursday night for the Scarlet
Knights' sixth straight win.
It was Louisville's (5-7, 1-6) worst finish since 1997.
Tim Brown and Tiquan Underwood each caught a pair of touchdown
passes and the Scarlet Knights (7-5, 5-2) set a school-record for
points in a Big East game. They rolled up 671 yards of total
offense.
Hunter Cantwell threw for 270 yards and a touchdown in his final
game for Louisville, which will be staying home during bowl season
for the second straight year.
Pressure is certain to mount on embattled coach Steve
Kragthorpe, too.
Louisville is just 11-13 in two years under Kragthorpe, who
replaced highly successful coach Bobby Petrino and is under a
five-year contract that pays him $1.1 million annually.
