Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater, blonde wig, black dress, blue eyeshadow

Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater not only excels on the football field, he also excels in the classroom and he isn’t afraid to do the little things to get extra credit.

Things like wearing a blonde wig, eyeshadow and putting on a black dress.

Yes, Bridgewater took a few photos of himself wearing drag as he prepared for his Gender Studies class at Louisville. The class apparently gives extra credit for students who challenge the confines of their gender.

Bridgewater is just being a good student even if he does make a wildly unattractive woman.

Shockingly, Bridgewater isn’t the first football player to be photographed in women’s clothing. Last year, Oklahoma receiver Kenny Stills posted a picture of himself in a sparkly purple dress and then there was former Auburn quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton who wore a angel costume to practice one day.

So, see, dressing in drag is not only a fun way to get extra credit, it’s also a college football rite of passage. Your move, Johnny Manziel.
