Two schools ranked in the top-10 in mid-October, Miami and Louisville, square off in Orlando. The Hurricanes are trying to win a bowl for the first time in seven years while the Cardinals seek their third bowl win in four years.
Miami went into a three-game tailspin after RB Duke Johnson was lost for the year, but regrouped with 86 points over a two-game win streak. The ‘Canes will need to score a ton to keep up with Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater (70.2% completions, 3,523 pass yards, 9.2 YPA, 28 TD, 4 INT), but the Cardinals have the No. 3 scoring defense in the nation with 12.4 PPG allowed.
