    Perkins, Virginia look to keep building against Louisville

    Bryce Perkins has shown himself to be a dynamic runner and an accurate passer in his first three starts for Virginia, and the transfer quarterback feels like the Cavaliers have hardly scratched the surface of their potential. Virginia (2-1) hopes to be clicking on all cylinders when it opens Atlantic Coast Conference play Saturday against Louisville (2-1), a team that knows more than a little bit about quarterbacks that can do it all. ''Oh man, we have a lot more to show,'' Perkins said of the offense.

    Since the beginning of the year the Home Office has been taking an in-depth look at the scale and nature of protests outside abortion clinics in England and Wales to see if more should be done to protect those attending them. Today, in a written statement, the Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, concluded no new laws were needed and "introducing national buffer zones would not be a proportionate response". The British Medical Association (BMA) said it had "serious concerns" about the findings.

    Rick Pitino returns to Louisville seeking 'closure' after bitter exit

    The former University of Louisville coach talked at a Courier Journal book-signing and chat. Correction: A previous version of this story misidentified how long the KFC Yum Center has been open. It opened in 2010. As with many other recent moments in his career, Rick Pitino's first public return to Louisville was marked by conflict.  The former University of Louisville basketball coach was torn between what he said was his desire for "closure" and the lingering bitterness from being fired in October amid a recruiting scandal.  Eventually, he said, the former won out. “I'm not going to let a few people who have nothing to do with the University of Louisville spoil all my great memories of this

    FC Cincinnati gets last laugh in Dirty River Derby, beating Louisville City FC 1-0

    LOUISVILLE – It took parts of four days, but Futbol Club Cincinnati outlasted Louisville City FC in one of the more bizarre soccer matches you'll see anywhere. Seventy-some hours after FC Cincinnati and Louisville saw their Saturday night match halted due to the effects of a tropical storm, the teams reconvened at Louisville Slugger Field Tuesday night and concluded the final approximately 52 minutes of the game. Corben Bone's 23rd-minute goal, scored Saturday prior to the stoppage, stood up as Cincinnati claimed a 1-0 win and moved 14 points clear atop the United Soccer League's Eastern Conference standings on a 19-3-6 record.  The victory also extended FC Cincinnati's club-record winning streak

    Louisville earns 31-7 rain-soaked win over Indiana State

    The first quarter alone seemed destined to last as long as a full game thanks to three weather delays, and their effect was evident on a Louisville squad that appeared to be treading water in many phases. A quick personnel change helped the waterlogged Cardinals regain their focus in time to end a long night on a high note. Backup quarterback Malik Cunningham accounted for two touchdowns, right tackle Mekhi Becton rushed for a 1-yard TD and Louisville finished strong for a 31-7, rain-delayed victory over Indiana State on Saturday night.
