On defense, Mathie intercepted a Hoban pass for the Leopards only takeaway. He returned it 14 yards to the Knights 44 setting Louisville up for a potential game-tying drive with 8:39 left in the second quarter. But three plays later, Hoban Defensive Back Matt Salopek returned the favor with a 72 yard interception return touchdown.
