LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - As a nickname, ``Honey Mustard'' doesn't have the same ring to it as ``Honey Badger.''
Damian Copeland's Louisville teammates say the moniker is their way of saying they like the wide receiver's style. But what they like even more: Copeland is contributing for the No. 19 Cardinals.
Injuries were a problem before this season and limited the junior with the blond mohawk to just eight games - including only one last year - and 113 yards.
Copeland enters Saturday's home game against North Carolina tied for the team lead with eight receptions and his 92 yards are just two behind leader Andrell Smith. While sophomore Teddy Bridgewater has involved everybody in Louisville's passing game, Copeland's inclusion demonstrates the Cardinals' trust in his health and ability.
