Cardinals Preparing for Saturday's Bowl Battle With Miami

The University of Louisville football team is in Orlando, Florida to prepare for Saturday’s Russell Athletic Bowl.

The 11-1 Cards will take on the 9-3 Miami Hurricanes.    

More than two dozen players on the U of L roster were recruited from the Miami area, including junior wide receiver Eli Rogers, who considered signing with the Hurricanes.

“Growing up in Miami, that’s like the home school .   So you’re always going to watch the home school and they are a good program.   I had my eye on them for a long time, but I’m here now.”

The Cardinals and Hurricanes will become more familiar foes next season when U of L joins the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Saturday’s kickoff for the Russell Athletic Bowl is 6:45pm.

This is Louisville’s fourth consecutive bowl appearance.
