CINCINNATI (AP) - Teddy Bridgewater made several great escapes to help No. 19 Louisville get to overtime, and Dominique Brown's 2-yard run gave the Cardinals a 31-24 victory over Cincinnati on Thursday night.

The comeback clinched the first American Athletic Conference title for Central Florida, which had a one-game lead over Cincinnati (9-3, 6-2) heading into the final weekend.

For the second year in a row, the Ohio River rivals went to overtime to decide who gets the Keg of Nails, this time for the foreseeable future with Louisville (11-7, 7-1) leaving for the Atlantic Coast Conference next season.

The Cardinals won 34-31 in overtime in the rain in Louisville last season. This one went to overtime on a wet, raw night when Cincinnati's Tony Miliano kicked a 26-yard field goal with 7 seconds left.

An interference penalty in the end zone set up Brown's 2-yard run to open overtime. Brendon Kay's fourth-down pass went incomplete, ending Cincinnati's first overtime game at Nippert Stadium since 2003.
