Teddy Bridgewater has learned a lot from his mother, Rose Murphy. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound quarterback is the unquestioned leader of Louisville's football team. The sophomore never gets rattled, possessing the poise of a fifth-year senior. The Miami native is the reason the 12th-ranked Cardinals (8-0, 3-0 Big East) are undefeated through eight games for the first time since 2006. "He knows that this football team relies a lot on him," said Louisville coach Charlie Strong, whose squad will entertain Temple (3-4, 2-2)

NEW ORLEANS - Terell Floyd returned an interception 38 yards for a touchdown on the first play, dual-threat quarterback Teddy Bridgewater directed several scoring drives and No. 22 Louisville surprised No. 4 Florida, 33-23, Wednesday night in the Sugar Bowl. Shaking off an early hit that flattened him and knocked off his helmet, Bridgewater returned to throw TD passes to DeVante Parker and Damian Copeland. The two-touchdown underdogs from the Big East took a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and were never caught.

NEW ORLEANS - Terell Floyd returned an interception 38 yards for a touchdown on the first play of the game, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater directed four more scoring drives, and No. 22 Louisville recorded a convincing 33-23 upset win over heavily favored No. 4 Florida in the Sugar Bowl on Wednesday night. Shaking off an early hit that flattened him and knocked off his helmet, Bridgewater was 20 of 32 passing for 266 yards and two touchdowns. Among his throws was a pinpoint, 15-yard toss in the second quarter that DeVante Parker acrobatically grabbed as he touched one foot down in the corner of the end zone.

It doesn't appear that many outside Temple believe the Owls have a chance on Saturday against Louisville. Many people think the heavily favored and 12th-ranked Cardinals (8-0, 3-0 Big East) will win big. "You wouldn't want it any other way," Temple coach Steve Addazio said. "Go play against the odds and just lay it on the line. I think we're in that grind where you say, 'That's enough. We're bleeding right now. Let's get going here.' We've got to go on the road and do that. It's a really tall order.

If the theme of Week 2 was the wicked sting of the injury bug, this weekend may go down as the dawn of the Class of 2014. Injury and ineptitude led to a changing of the guard at quarterback in Minnesota and Jacksonville, respectively. Much like Derek Carr in Oakland, both Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles have stepped into less-than-desirable offensive situations and cannot be expected to prosper in the short term. Meanwhile, in Cleveland, a certain uber-hyped freshman QB still awaits his turn, perhaps because his achingly short "highlight" reel features as many yellow flags as red ones.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 4 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals vs. Chiefs. You have to be impressed by the way Dalton and his receiving corps dismantled the Ravens pass defense in Week 3. Meanwhile, the Chiefs have given up 10 passing TDs already. Derek Carr, QB, Raiders at Bears. Carr has been en fuego over the last two weeks, teaming up with rookie Amari Cooper as one of the most prolific young duos in the league.

Teddy Bridgewater threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Eli Rogers with 1 minute, 35 seconds left, and No. 16 Louisville remained perfect by edging South Florida, 27-25, in Louisville, Ky., Saturday for the Cardinals' best start since 2006. Louisville (7-0, 2-0 Big East) rallied after yielding 15 straight points to South Florida and a season-high 197 yards rushing. B.J. Daniels threw three TD passes in the second half, the last one putting South Florida ahead by 25-21 with 3:09 left.

Jeremy Wright rushed for 105 yards and three touchdowns, and Teddy Bridgewater passed for 232, helping No. 25 Louisville start the season strong with a 32-14 victory against rival Kentucky on Sunday in Louisville, Ky. The Cardinals drove 99, 85, and 93 yards on their first three scoring drives and scored on five of their first seven overall. After a promising start, including a TD drive that brought them within 8-7, the Wildcats could not match Louisville's offensive intensity. Bridgewater completed 19 of 21 passes, but his first two completions for 40 yards opened things up for Wright, who rushed for 30 yards on that drive and capped it with the first of two 1-yard scores.

  Robert Woods went over defensive backs and outmuscled them. He darted and cut through Syracuse and made a huge play every time Southern California needed to shake free from the Orange. The all-American receiver was so good, Matt Barkley's school-record six TD passes seemed almost pedestrian. Woods was spectacular, with 200 all-purpose yards and two scores, helping No. 2 USC (2-0) come away from a rare trip to the Northeast with a 42-29 victory against the Orange at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on Saturday.

If Big East football hasn't had enough drama lately (with all the reconstituting that's in play), more was added Saturday when the conference's two ranked teams stumbled. No. 21 Rutgers, which will leave the Big East for the Big Ten in two years, was pounded by host Pittsburgh, losing 27-6 at Heinz Field. And No. 19 Louisville, which has been rumored to be courted by other conferences, lost at home to Connecticut, 23-20, on a 30-yard field goal in the third overtime. The upsets will have little effect on the Big East championship, however, as Rutgers (9-2, 5-1 Big East)

Seattle clinched a playoff spot on Sunday, while Carolina continued its unlikely march toward perfection. Along the way, their quarterbacks are carrying countless fantasy teams to the promised land by playing at a consistently - even ridiculously - high level. In my leagues, three-fourths of the teams that advanced to this weekend's championship games are led by either Newton or Wilson. I suspect those two are common denominators in the vast majority of fantasy leagues, along with Antonio Brown and two receivers who are rapidly shedding the "underachiever" label that has followed them throughout their careers: Doug Baldwin and Ted Ginn.

Could a potential Eagles quarterback of the future be playing in their own stadium this weekend? No doubt when Memphis (8-2 overall, 4-2 American Athletic Conference) visits Temple (8-2, 5-1) on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field, Paxton Lynch will be a featured attraction among NFL scouts. The 6-foot-7, 245-pound Lynch has generated plenty of NFL buzz. "He has become a first-round quarterback," Temple coach Matt Rhule said. "We have seen Teddy Bridgewater, [Blake] Bortles, and he is the next one. " Temple played against Bridgewater at Louisville.

It all started with thousands of quarterbacks at Nike combines around the country, playing for a chance to be in the Elite 11 quarterback competition. Those thousands became 30 in June. The 30 were then whittled to the 18 quarterbacks who made the trip to Nike's headquarters in Beaverton, Ore. And when a week of competition produced the Elite 11 last Friday, two Philadelphia-area quarterbacks stood among the nation's best. "I think that everyone looks at the meccas of high school football being Texas, Florida, or California," said Archbishop Wood's Anthony Russo, who was joined in the Elite 11 by Council Rock North's Brandon McIlwain.

YEAH, I KNOW pre-Valentine's Day mock drafts are pretty absurd. We haven't even had the combine or the Pro Day workouts. But hey, wouldn't you rather read who the Eagles might take at No. 20, even if it's an absolute blind guess? So, let's hit it from the top: 1. TAMPA BAY Jameis Winston, QB Florida State 6-5, 235 Risky pick because of his off-the-field issues, but he's the most NFL-ready quarterback in the draft. 2. TENNESSEE Marcus Mariota, QB Oregon 6-4, 211 Forget all of the nonsense about Mariota falling out of the top 5 because he didn't play in a pro-style offense.

Marcus Smith was a 6-foot-3, 210-pound high school quarterback when he attended Florida's football camp. He intrigued Gators defensive coordinator Charlie Strong - but not because of his arm. "I knew he wasn't a quarterback," said Strong, the current Texas coach who coached Smith at Louisville, "but I knew he was something. " That something was a Louisville pass rusher, and eventually an Eagles first-round pick. This is the second straight year that the Eagles drafted a converted quarterback: 2013 first-round pick Lane Johnson also started his college career as a quarterback before finishing as an offensive tackle.

WHEN HE WAS coaching at FCS East Tennessee State, Marcus Satterfield saw Marcus Smith play at Hardaway High School in Columbus, Ga. Only he didn't watch the guy the Eagles just took with their No. 1 draft pick play defensive end or outside linebacker. At that time, the 6-3, 250-pounder was still a quarterback. And a pretty good one. "It's ironic, because you could recruit him, but you knew he was going to be a BCS-type kid," recalled Satterfield, who's now in his second year as Temple's offensive coordinator.

INDIANAPOLIS - It seems like only yesterday we were shoveling dirt on the yet-to-be-born NFL career of Johnny Manziel. After winning the Heisman Trophy two Decembers ago as a redshirt freshman, the Texas A&M quarterback they called "Johnny Football" turned into Johnny Stupid. He became a magnet for bad publicity, which can happen when you're a famous, immature kid living in a fish bowl such as College Station, Texas. Too much partying, too little good judgment. He became sort of a gridiron version of Lindsay Lohan.

CHIP KELLY said he hasn't given a single moment of thought to who his starting quarterback will be in 2014, and there's no reason to doubt him. Like all football coaches, Kelly has a one-game-at-a-time mentality. It's the only way you can survive in his business. He can't afford to worry about next year until the curtain comes down on this year. But NFL general managers have a broader perspective. While they certainly can't ignore the present, they also need to have an eye on the future.
