Louisville's Brohm has knee surgery

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Quarterback Brian Brohm underwent knee
surgery Monday and will return next season for Louisville.

Dr. David Caborn performed the surgery on the anterior cruciate
ligament in Brohm's right knee at Jewish Hospital. Brohm injured
the knee while scrambling in the third quarter of Louisville's
41-17 win over Syracuse on Nov. 26.

Brohm will spend the next six to nine months in rehabilitation.
He passed for a Big East-leading 2,883 yards and 19 touchdowns
during his sophomore season.

The Cardinals (No. 16 ESPN/USA Today, No. 15 AP) finished the regular season 9-2 after
freshman quarterback Hunter Cantwell guided them to a 30-20 win
over Connecticut on Saturday.

Louisville will face No. 12 Virginia Tech (10-2) in the Gator
Bowl on Jan. 2 in Jacksonville.
