Bowl Projections: 9-6-18

Cardinal Stadium 27 (1 of 1)

USA Today released their bowl projections after week one of the college football season. They have UofL in a bowl fans are quite familiar with against an opponent the Cards have beaten down once before.

That’s right Card Nation, it’s the Belk Bowl on December 29th. UofL fans have bad memories of Teddy Bridgewater getting pummeled by NC State in the 2011 game and Nick Chubb wrecking our defense in Bobby Petrino’s first season back as coach.

The projected opponent is Florida; the team UofL beat down in the 2013 Sugar Bowl to make Kirk Herbstreit eat his words.I don’t mind this projection at all. UofL gets to beat Florida again, which their neighbors down the road haven’t done in over 30 years, and we fans get to exorcise the Belk Bowl demons that haunt our memories.

Bring on the Belk Bowl and bring on Florida…unless, of course, the Cards go 10-1 the rest of the season and make a New Year’s Six bowl.
