Mark Schlabach (ESPN) gives his Sugar Bowl prediction

From ESPN.com:

Sugar Bowl

Allstate Sugar Bowl

No. 21 Louisville vs. No. 3 Florida, Jan. 2 (ESPN, 8:30 p.m. ET)

Why to watch: The Gators came within one victory of playing for an SEC championship and potentially a BCS national title. The Cardinals are coached by former Gators defensive coordinator Charlie Strong, who helped UF win two BCS national championships.

Who to watch: Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater showed his toughness by playing with a broken left wrist on his nonthrowing hand in the Cardinals’ 20-17 victory at Rutgers on Nov. 29, which punched their ticket to the Sugar Bowl. Bridgewater completed 69 percent of his passes this season for 3,452 yards with 25 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Motivation for Louisville: The Cardinals can earn a lot of respect for the beleaguered Big East by upsetting a top team from the SEC.

Motivation for Florida: The Gators won 11 games in coach Will Muschamp’s second season and might be able to finish No. 2 in the final polls with another victory.

Pick: Florida 42, Louisville 17
