MIAMI (AP) — James Quick caught two touchdown passes from Will Gardner 45 seconds apart late in the first half, Gerod Holliman ran one of his two interceptions back for another score and Louisville topped Florida International 34-3 on Saturday night.

Quick finished with 174 yards — 111 of them on the TD grabs — on seven catches for the Cardinals (3-1), who got a touchdown run from L.J. Scott.

Gardner threw for 295 yards, but he and Scott both left the game with injuries. Louisville led 28-0 late in the half, giving the Cardinals what was 100 unanswered points in the series after topping FIU 72-0 last season.

Austin Taylor kicked a 28-yard field goal for FIU (1-3). Starting quarterback Alex McGough left in the third quarter after his third turnover of the night.

Kickoff was delayed 1 hour, 5 minutes because of severe weather in the area.
