The Russell Athletic Bowl will have a great matchup that features the 9-3 Miami Hurricanes facing the 11-1 Louisville Cardinals, this Saturday at the Florida Citrus Bowl at 6:45 PM ET.
Miami had a good season led by senior quarterback Stephen Morris, who threw for 2,868 yards and 21 TDs. “It’d be a great challenge and a great headline for a lot of people,” Morris said. “Teddy’s a great quarterback. …. A lot of people would focus on that, two quarterbacks from Miami going at it.”
Morris will go head to head against Teddy Bridgewater, the Cardinals QB who is projected to be one of the hottest names in the upcoming NFL draft.
“This is a very talented young man. He has great command on the offense,” Miami coach Al Golden said. “… He has speed, good corps of receivers, knows how to distribute the football, doesn’t make many mistakes with the football, can move in the pocket. It’s going to be a great challenge for our corners and safeties.”
Miami leads this all-time series 9-1-1 but the last time they met was in 2006 with a Cardinals win.
Louisville not only has Bridgewater on their side, but their defense is the third best in point scored, allowing just 12.4 per game.
The NCAAF spread for this one has the Cardinals as 3.5 point favorites, and the game total at 58. The betting trends say Louisville is 14-3 ATS against ACC opponents since 1992.
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
