LOUISVILLE, Ky. - University of Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was named an honorable mention All-American by Pro Football Weekly on Wednesday.
Bridgewater, who was named the BIG EAST's Offensive Player of the Year, was also selected a first team All-BIG EAST award winner after guiding the Cardinals to a 10-2 overall record, and the school's second-straight BIG EAST title.
The Miami, Fla., native threw for 3,452 yards and 25 touchdowns this season. A sophomore, he ranks fourth in school history for yards in a season and is fifth in touchdown passes. Bridgewater recorded two 400-yard passing games this year and completed 69 percent of his passes. Bridgewater threw for a career-best 426 yards, and tossed a career-best five touchdowns in a win over Temple. A week later, in a 45-26 loss to Syracuse, he completed 36-of-49 passes for 424 yards and three touchdowns.
The No. 22/21 Cardinals return to practice Thursday to begin preparations for the 2013 Allstate Sugar Bowl against fourth-ranked Florida in New Orleans, La.
