A lot was on the line for Louisville when it played Miami at Hard Rock Stadium in Coral Gables this past Saturday.

Win the game, its final Atlantic Coast Conference regular season contest, and move to a 10-1 record for the season. It would qualify the Cardinals for a spot opposite undefeated Florida State in the ACC Championship Game. And it would continue the team’s consideration for the College Football Playoff Top 10, keeping alive outside chances for being among the final four teams playing for the national title.

But entering the fourth quarter, things weren’t looking good for the visitors. The Hurricanes led, 28-23. And with 10 minutes gone in the period, the score was still tied, 31-31. Louisville needed a big play. It got it – along with a big-time stroke of luck leading to the win.

With just 4:17 remaining, wide open receiver Kevin Coleman pulled in a 58-yard catch-and-run from quarterback Jack Plummer, providing the final score in the 38-31 victory.  Coleman was so clear because two Hurricane defensive backs collided at full speed in pass coverage, leaving Coleman uncovered.

The game-winning reception has been chosen as the U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish “Catch of the Week.”

For the game, Williams caught only two passes, including the fourth quarter touchdown. Plummer completed 24 of 37 passes for 308 yards and three scores.

Remember … for the tailgate tent or the pre-game party, U. S. Farm-Raised Catfish is always “the winning catch.”

The Catfish Institute, or TCI, was formed in 1986 by catfish farmers and feed manufacturers to raise consumer awareness of the positive qualities of U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish. Since its formation, U.S. per capita consumption has more than doubled.

U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish is a sustainable and environmentally friendly seafood product. The National Audubon Society, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Environmental Defense all recommend U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish as a safe environmental choice. To find out more, visit www.uscatfish.com.
