Louisville rallied in the second half by outscoring the Scarlet Knights 17-3 and earned the trip to New Orleans in the Sugar Bowl. Florida’s path to the Sugar Bowl came off an 11-1 regular season record. The only loss to keep the Gators away from the BCS title game came at the hands of the Georgia Bulldogs as Florida behind six turnovers drop a 17-9 home decision.

Sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw for 3452 yards and completed 69% of his throws with 25 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.

The Redskins are just 4-3 on their home turf this season. They suffered home defeats to Carolina, Atlanta and Cincinnati.

Central Michigan fans on November 3rd after their team dropped a 42-31 home decision to Western Michigan probably thought that the Chippewas had no chance to make a bowl game. At 3-6 even if the team swept the final three games to finish at 6-6 who in the right mind would select a .500 team from the MAC? With teams like Penn St, Ohio St, North Carolina, Miami to just name a few unable to compete in post season play and a snafu by the athletic director at Louisiana Tech meant that the Chippewas are going bowling in an unlikely scenario where seven MAC schools are in bowl games. Their biggest win this season came way back in week four as they head into Iowa and come away with the 32-31 road upset win. Western Kentucky faltered down the stretch with three losses in their past four games. They do manage a win in their final regular season game by defeating North Texas 25-24 as a -11 point favorite. Impressive victories by the Hilltoppers this season came on the road with a one point overtime win at Kentucky and a 26-13 win on the highway against Sun Belt conference champion Arkansas St by a 16-13 margin as a +1 point underdog.
