From U of L:

The University of Louisville football program set a number of records on the field last season, but the Cardinals also posted records in the classroom.

The team recorded a 2.83 grade-point average for the spring semester, the highest registered GPA in the program's history.

"I'm very proud of the commitment our players showed in the classroom this semester," head coach Bobby Petrino said. "To post the highest grade-point average in our history means a lot to our dedication to academics at the University of Louisville. I'm very appreciative of the efforts of the entire academic support staff and our student-athletes in posting such an outstanding achievement."

Overall, the Cardinals had one perfect 4.0 GPA, and saw 36 student-athletes post a 3.0 or higher and 70 athletes over a 2.5 GPA.

For the year, the Cardinals had 24 student-athletes receive their degrees, including seven in the spring.

Heading into the 2015 season, five student-athletes will participate with their degrees in hand.
