TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Louisville seemingly could do no wrong in the first half, building a 24-point lead. But even as the game flipped on the Cardinals, they again made a big defensive play in the second half to hold on for a second straight critical win.
Malik Cunningham had four first-half touchdowns - two passing and two rushing - and Louisville held off Florida State's second-half rally, 31-23, in the Cardinals' Atlantic Coast Conference opener on Saturday.
Cunningham now has eight rushing touchdowns, two in each game for Louisville (3-1, 1-0). He completed 25 of 39 passes for 264 yards and ran 14 times for 56 yards.
