The Cards celebrated their seniors today before the game against the Memphis Tigers at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. The Cards are losing a total of 18 players, most of whom have made quite an impact on the team. Wide Receiver Damian Copeland has been on the team for four years, though an early injury in 2011 kept him out for the entire season. He has played in every game since returning, with an average of 42 yards per game.
In today's game, the Cards saw 22 first downs and 24 points. Dominique Brown led the team in rushing yards with 17 carries for a total gain of 65 yards. Damian Copeland led the team in receiving yards with 7 receptions for 55 yards.
It is still unclear whether Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will stay for his senior year or leave early. Many mock NFL drafts have him as a number one pick, and was the favorite for the Heisman Trophy earlier this season.
The Cards final regular season game will be December 5th against Cincinnati.
