(Louisville, Ky.) You've seen him make plays everywhere from the practice field to the big stage at the Sugar Bowl, but University of Louisville quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater's playmaking ability doesn't stop there.
The Cards' Heisman Trophy candidate also makes play in the virtual world on EA Sports College Football 2014, and believe it or not, he uses the game as another way to practice. Of course, Teddy always plays with UofL, which gives him the feel of the actual game. "I take it as me taking extra reps. Virtual reps since I can't be on the practice field 24/7," said Bridgewater.
Thanks to the game, Bridgewater has already "virtually" scouted the Cards opening day opponent Ohio. He played the game back in July, before training camp began, but oddly enough, he remembered his stats. "I think I went about 25-27. About 300 yards, four touchdowns," said Bridgewater. For the record, the Cards won the game.
While the game is cool, and realistic, don't expect UofL head coach, Charlie Strong to take the results of Teddy's game too seriously. "It's a video game now, we'll have real people out there," said Strong.
