Bridgewater (6-feet-3, 205 pounds) is considered by most draft analysts to be the most pro-ready of the draft-eligible quarterbacks. But he gave no indication Saturday as to whether he is turning pro.
"I'm up here to talk about the team and today's victory," Bridgewater said in a postgame news conference Saturday. "It's all about the seniors today. It's not about me."
He was asked specifically if he had considered that Saturday's game was his final game.
"Not at all," Bridgewater said. "I still feel that we have more games left on the schedule. I have to focus on that."
Bridgewater is 10th nationally in passing, averaging 297.1 yards per game, with 25 touchdowns and three interceptions for the Cardinals (10-1). Louisville's final regular-season game is Dec. 5 at Cincinnati (9-2). Bridgewater reportedly is on track to graduate in December with a degree in sports administration.
