It looks like the Louisville Cardinals will lose arguably the most successful quarterback in the history of their program, as Teddy Bridgewater is set to declare for the NFL Draft:

If Saturday night’s Russell Athletic Bowl was Bridgewater’s final game with the Cardinals, the junior certainly went out in style, picking apart the Miami Hurricanes to the tune of 35-of-45 passes for 447 yards and three touchdowns without throwing an interception
Bridgewater is the No. 1-rated quarterback prospect by most scouting services and NFL analysts. Bridgewater graduated last month with a degree in sports administration. He’s the first member of his family to graduate from college.
The Houston Texans’ 16-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday clinched the first overall selection for the 2-14 team. The team just hired Penn State’s Bill O’Brien last night, and his first draft pick as an NFL head coach will likely be Bridgewater.
