LOUISVILLE, Ky.Junior quarterback Josh Freeman threw for 313 yards and three touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough as K-State dropped a 38-29 decision to Louisville at Papa John’s Stadium on Wednesday night.

Freeman, who eclipsed the 300-yard barrier for the first time this season, broke the Kansas State career completions record of 501 held by Lynn Dickey (1968-70) midway through the contest. He went 22-of-42 through the air with three touchdowns and a pair of interceptions.

Receiver Brandon Banks had career day with seven catches for 153 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He becomes the first Wildcat since Jordy Nelson in 2007 to post a 150-yard receiving day.

However, Louisville overpowered the visiting Wildcats (2-1) with 578 yards of total offense, including 303 on the ground.

Freshman Victor Anderson ran for 176 yards and three touchdowns for the Cardinals, as Anderson scored on runs of 29, 56 and 27 yards.

Louisville quarterback Hunter Cantwell threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns, Doug Beaumont had nine receptions for 119 yards and the Cardinals’ defense held Freeman largely in check when it mattered.

Deon Murphy had a spectacular 86-yard punt return for the Wildcats, but Kansas State turned the ball over three times and had trouble solving Louisville’s three-pronged rushing attack of Anderson, Brock Bolen and Bilal Powell.
