Louisville beats Mississippi State 38-28 at Music City Bowl

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Consider the Louisville Cardinals' turnaround in coach Scott Satterfield's debut a smashing success.

Micale Cunningham threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 81 more, and Louisville beat Mississippi State 38-28 Monday in the Music City Bowl.

The Cardinals (8-5) rallied from a 14-point deficit by scoring 31 straight to finish their big turnaround from 2-10 last season. Louisville also finally beat Mississippi State on the field for the first time in six tries, though the series now is tied 3-3 thanks to a pair of forfeits by the Bulldogs in the 1970s.
