LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Brandon Radcliff rushed for 146 yards and two touchdowns as Louisville beat Virginia 38-31 on Saturday.

The Cardinals (6-4, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) broke open a 24-24 tie game with two fourth-quarter touchdowns. James Quick forced Virginia's Olamide Zaccheaus to fumble on a punt return, setting up L.J. Scott's 1-yard score with 8:30 remaining.

Radcliff's 36-yard touchdown run capped a 96-yard drive with 2:57 left for a 38-24 lead.

Virginia (3-7, 2-4) tried to rally as Matt Johns threw his fourth touchdown pass with 1:16 remaining to cut the lead to 38-31. The Cavaliers then recovered the onside kick but were flagged for illegal formation, allowing Louisville to run out the clock.

Louisville rushed for 266 yards - their fifth 200-yard rushing performance of the season - and is now bowl eligible for the sixth year in a row.
