Louisville, KY (Sports Network) - A timeout call to ice Cardinals kicker John Wallace backfired, and 16th-ranked Louisville beat Cincinnati, 34-31 in overtime, Friday night.

The rainy conditions played a big factor in the outcome. Cincinnati got the ball to start overtime, but on 3rd-and-9, Terell Floyd stepped in front of tight end Travis Kelce to make an interception of a Munchie Legaux pass in the left side of the end zone.

The Cardinals ran the ball five straight times until Wallace came onto the field for his 30-yard field goal attempt. The snap from center went high over the holder's head, but Cincinnati coach Butch Jones had signaled for a timeout.

Wallace then knocked in the winning kick to give Louisville (8-0, 3-0 Big East) the win in the 52nd Battle For The Keg Of Nails.

Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater completed 24-of-41 passes for 416 yards and a pair of fourth-quarter TDs, both to DeVante Parker.

Legaux ended 13-of-28 for 157 yards with a TD and three interceptions. George Winn rushed 26 times for 125 yards for the Bearcats (5-2, 1-1), who had tied the game with 63 seconds remaining in the last quarter thanks to Legaux's 26- yard scoring strike to Damon Julian.
