LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -Louisville senior quarterback Adam Froman passed for 219 yards and a touchdown as the Cardinals beat Eastern Kentucky 23-13 on Saturday.
Froman threw for 190 of his yards in the first half, including the touchdown to senior receiver Doug Beaumont, who had 83 yards on four catches.
It was the first win for the Cardinals (1-1) under first-year coach Charlie Strong. They lost their opener 23-16 to Kentucky.
Louisville, donning special helmets adorned with stars and stripes to mark the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks nine years ago, outlasted the Colonels (0-2) after scoring all of their points in the second quarter.
Eastern Kentucky never threatened, despite closing the gap to 23-7 on Jeremy Caldwell's 80-yard return after intercepting a pass by Froman.
The teams combined for 25 penalties and nearly 200 penalty yards.
