LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Dominique Brown's 15-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and Gerald Christian's 10-yard TD catch late in the fourth followed Louisville's big defensive performance that helped beat Miami 31-13 Monday night.
The victory provided a successful Atlantic Coast Conference debut for the Cardinals and to Bobby Petrino's second coaching stint at the school.
Despite the 18-point margin, Louisville showed little of the offensive efficiency expected in Petrino's return as the Cardinals outgained the Hurricanes 336-244 in a ragged game offensively for both teams. Louisville's new 3-4 defense provided many of the opportunities by forcing three takeaways, including one that followed a costly fumble by Cardinals quarterback Will Gardner inside his 15.
After Louisville held Miami to a field goal following Gardner's second fumble in the third quarter, Brown's TD provided a 21-13 cushion. Christian's scoring pass from Gardner with 1:43 remaining sealed the win.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Logan Mankins says he was a little surprised, though not upset, by the trade that sent him from the New England Patriots to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Bucs acquired the six-time Pro Bowl guard in exchange for tight end Tim Wright and a 2015 fourth-round draft choice and are counting on Mankins to make a difference on their struggling offensive line.
The 32-year-old became available after he and the Patriots were unable to restructure a contract that pays him $6.25 million this season. The Bucs were grateful to get an accomplished veteran they expect to learn the playbook quickly and continue to perform at a high level.
T25-FLORIDA ST-DEFENSIVE LINE
No. 1 Florida State down a pass rusher; WR returns
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State's Chris Casher remains listed as the starting outside linebacker, but coach Jimbo Fisher says his status remains unknown.
Fisher said Monday that the Seminoles are waiting for further information on the sophomore.
Casher was pulled from the lineup due to an "academic-related matter" shortly before Florida State's 37-31 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday.
The top-ranked Seminoles, however, will have sophomore receiver Jesus "Bobo" Wilson back from what became a one-game suspension. Wilson pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors after being arrested for stealing a motor scooter on campus this summer.
MIAMI (AP) -- Giancarlo Stanton hit his 34th home run and the Miami Marlins scored three runs in the eighth inning to beat the New York Mets 9-6 on Monday.
Miami took advantage of some wildness by Mets reliever Jeurys Familia (2-4) in the eighth. Familia had two throwing errors and a wild pitch, leading to the three tiebreaking runs as the Marlins snapped a five-game losing streak to the Mets.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia scored on Familia's wild pitch, giving the Marlins a 7-6 lead. Adeiny Hechavarria later scored on a fielder's choice with the bases loaded and Christian Yelich came in a walk to Casey McGehee.
Marcell Ozuna and McGehee had two RBIs each for the Marlins, who used five relievers after starter Henderson Alvarez left in the third inning with a left oblique strain.
A.J. Ramos (6-0) pitched a scoreless eighth and Steve Cishek the ninth for his 32nd save.
ST. PETERBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Matt Joyce had an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning to help the Tampa Bay Rays salvage a split of a four-game series by beating the Boston Red Sox 4-3 on Monday.
Ryan Hanigan opened the 10th with a double off Burke Badenhop (0-3), which withstood a replay review. Kevin Kiermaier was intentionally walked before Ben Zobrist had a sacrifice bunt. After Wil Myers was given an intentional walk, pinch-runner Sean Rodriquez, who ran for Hanigan, scored on Joyce's hit to left.
Grant Balfour (2-6) worked a scoreless inning for the win. He did give up a one-out single in the 10th to Christian Vazquez, but then picked off pinch-runner Jemile Weeks at first base.
After Mike Napoli hit a solo homer in the fourth inning, Yoenis Cespedes got the Red Sox even at 3-3 with an RBI single off Steve Geltz in the eighth.
