This is a great “problem” to have. Orange Bowl or Sugar Bowl? Those are the 2 most likely destinations for the Louisville Cardinals after last night’s incredible win at Rutgers. And of all teams to decide where we probably end up, it will be Kent State. The same Kent State team that lost to Kentucky 47-14! That was their only loss of the season, and now their game tonight against Northern Illinois will determine where the Cards end up. Let me explain…
Jerry Palm has released his bowl projections for this season on cbssports.com, and he has UofL in a rematch of one of the biggest wins in program history. He projects the Cards to make it all the way to the Sugar Bowl to face…Alabama. These teams faced off in the 1991 Fiesta Bowl, with Louisville winning 34-7! Here are some fun facts about that game from fiestabowl.org , followed by the link to the rest of Palm’s bowl projections.
