Banged-up Bridgewater won't start, will play
Bridgewater is nursing a broken left wrist and sprained right ankle from last week's loss to Connecticut. He warmed up before Thursday night's game. He was wearing a long-sleeved white undershirt and no cast could be seen on his broken arm.
Stein, a senior, has not started a game this season, completing 12-of-23 passes for 72 yards.
The Cardinals and Scarlet Knights are playing for the Big East title and a BCS bid.
