LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- This was one dominant performance, and Teddy Bridgewater and No. 7 Louisville think they can perform even better. Its definitely a nice problem to have heading into conference action. Bridgewater threw four touchdown passes and Louisvilles defence allowed a school-record 30 yards during a 72-0 wipeout of Florida International on Saturday. It was the highest scoring game for the Cardinals (4-0) since a 73-10 victory over Murray State in 2007. They matched the schools fifth-largest margin of victory while recording their first shutout since a 26-0 win over Connecticut in 2010. Asked afterward if the Cardinals victory was the most complete effort he has seen, Bridgewater said: "As a team, yes. But we feel we have a little way to go and continue to get better each and every day. "Well take this win and build off that." The margin might have been even worse if not for a clock issue in the second half. Gerald Austin, the co-ordinator of officials for Conference USA, acknowledged in a statement that the clock was allowed to run at times when it should have been stopped. FIU coach Ron Turner "made a comment to one of the officials that, given the amount of injuries and the limited numbers of players he had available, he wanted to run the ball in the second half," Austin said in a release. "One official misinterpreted that comment. "After reviewing the tape there were five times that the clock should have been stopped and it did not. Four times were on first down and one play where the runner went out of bounds, based on a quick review of the video." Austin and Turner both said the coach never requested a running clock. "I did notice it was going quicker," Turner said. "First of all, I dont have the authority to request it. I wish I had the authority. Im not saying I wouldnt have, you know, but I did not request it." Bridgewater hit DeVante Parker for two TD passes and Gerald Christian and Eli Rogers for one apiece before Will Gardner came on and passed to Michaelee Harris for another score in the fourth quarter. Dominique Brown, Senorise Perry, Michael Dyer and Brandon Radcliff rushed for TDs. Charles Gaines returned the second-half kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown, and recovered a muffed punt to set up Bridgewaters second TD pass in the second quarter. Meanwhile, Louisvilles defence didnt allow a first down until early in the second quarter and just two overall, also a program record. FIU converted just 1 of 13 third-down chances. Louisville coach Charlie Strong believes that kind of effort will eventually result in perfection. "We try to reach that level and were going to get there," Strong said. "The way you practice, you feel like that (being perfect). ... I tell players all the time just try to give your best, thats all were looking for each and every down." Bridgewater had 212 yards on 17-of-22 passing, part of Louisvilles 464-yard effort against winless FIU (0-4). It was another efficient performance for the junior quarterback. A week after tossing just one touchdown pass against in-state rival Kentucky, Bridgewater threw for three scores by halftime and added another in the third quarter. That got the Cardinals rolling toward the offensive performance they wanted in their final game before travelling to Temple for their American Athletic Conference opener on Oct. 5. "It was just a great overall performance in all three phases of the game," Bridgewater said. "We just went out today and competed and played a complete game." It was a much different outcome than the previous two games in the series. The schools had split two prior meetings, with each earning seven-point road wins. Louisville won 28-21 in Miami last year. The Cardinals were 42-point favourites for this one, with overwhelming advantages in every statistical category. And it went as expected. Four of Louisvilles eight first-half possessions began at midfield or in Panthers territory. The Cardinals converted three of those chances into a 17-0 lead. Bridgewater hit Parker for a 3-yard touchdown pass that was initially ruled incomplete. The call was reversed after a video review showed the receiver got his right foot down in the end zone while making his second acrobatic TD catch in as many weeks. John Wallace added a 26-yard field goal and Perry had a 26-yard run off left tackle to keep the roll going. It was just more of the same as the game wore on. Browns 77-yard run set up his 1-yard TD dive in the second quarter and Bridgewater completed four passes for 68 yards on another scoring drive, connecting with Parker for 6 yards for his third TD. Another nightmarish game for FIU continued into the third quarter, with Gaines returned the second-half kickoff for another touchdown. Louisville has 23 players from South Florida, including Bridgewater, so the Panthers were more than familiar with the Cardinals personnel. But they lacked the talent to keep up with Louisville, which led 38-0 at the break. "Nothing will surprise me with this team," Turner said of Louisville. "Theyre a great football team all the way around. There are no weak areas. Theyre very well coached, they play hard and they have exceptional athletes." ... Jersey . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. . -- Jimmie Johnson held off a teammate, passed a pair of Hall of Famers, and dominated once more at Dover.

That doesnt mean his status for this weekend is even close to determined. "I dont have any updates on him," coach Jim Schwartz said. "You guys saw what you saw." Johnson was inactive in a loss at Green Bay last weekend because of an injured right knee. He didnt practice Wednesday, but he was on the field Thursday during the portion of practice open to reporters. Johnson didnt participate in every drill, but he did do some footwork and pass-catching exercises with other receivers. "It feels good to be out there," Johnson said. "Im feeling better, definitely. So we can just leave it at that." Detroit lost 22-9 to the Packers without Johnson. The star receiver has 21 catches for 312 yards and four touchdowns on the season. The Lions play at Cleveland on Sunday. "It certainly helps to have him out there," offensive co-ordinator Scott Linehan said. "Thats the understatement of the day." The Lions (3-2) had won two in a row before arriving in Green Bay, but Johnson was a surprising scratch. Hed given cryptic answers about his health a few days before the game, but Johnson had been banged up before and missed only one game since the start of the 2010 season. He had to sit out another Sunday, and Detroits offence did not look good at all. The Lions are also missing receiver Nate Burleson, who is still recovering after hurting his arm in a car accident. Burleson was on the practice field Thursday as well, wearing a backward cap. While his teammates caught footballs, he tried to catch tennis balls with his good arm during drills. Burleson isnt expected back for a while, but Johnsons presence on the field was at least a small step in the right direction.dddddddddddd "Its just going to depend on how he feels when we get to game day," Schwartz said. "He had a bunch of times last year where he didnt practice at all, and went out and played on Sunday, and last week he practiced on Friday and wasnt able to go out there on Sunday." Tight ends Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler had four catches apiece last weekend, but Scheffler is now recovering from a concussion and didnt practice at all Thursday. Suddenly Detroits dynamic passing game looks decimated, putting more pressure on running back Reggie Bush. The Lions hope for a lift from Kevin Ogletree, who signed with Detroit last week and caught a couple passes against Green Bay. "He has really good hands. Its good to see him catch the ball with his hands all the time," Johnson said. "It builds confidence in the coaches in him." The Lions dont like to give out much information on injuries because they worry it could provide a competitive advantage to the opponent, but this week, the real question is about Detroits preparation. If Johnson cant play, can the Lions come close to replacing his production? Schwartz says the uncertainty surrounding Johnson isnt a distraction for the rest of the team. "Theres a lot of fantasy football owners that want to know whether hes going to play or not," Schwartz said. "But the guys in the locker room, were prepared." NOTES: T Jason Fox (knee), LB Ashlee Palmer (ankle) and RB Theo Riddick (concussion) did not practice. S Louis Delmas (knee), CB Chris Houston (hamstring) and S Glover Quin (ankle) were limited.
