Louisville backup QB Bonnafon is out vs. FIU

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Louisville coach Bobby Petrino says freshman backup quarterback Reggie Bonnafon will miss Saturday's game at Florida International to be with family after the death of his father.

Wallace Bonnafon died Monday of heart failure. His son did not practice on Tuesday, and Petrino said during a Wednesday conference call that the Louisville native will not travel with the Cardinals (2-1) because of weekend funeral arrangements.

Petrino said, "We won't have Reggie this week. It's a very tough situation for him and his family, something that caught him a little bit off guard. The plans are they're going to have the showing on Friday and the funeral on Saturday, so he's just going to focus on helping his mom and the rest of his family."
