Sugar Bowl 2013: Gators plan for Louisville's Bridgewater

USA TODAY Sports

The Florida Gators defense will have their hands full with Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

The Florida Gators continue to plan for the Louisville Cardinals, a big part of which will be containing Cardinals quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

As a report from the Miami Herald says, Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is not taking him lightly.

"When you give a good quarterback time, and he's an accurate thrower, they can make you look bad," he said. "When he gets comfortable, he is a dangerous guy, and he's a problem."

Bridgewater, the 2012 Big East Offensive Player of the Year, has already thrown for 3,452 yards and 25 touchdowns and is sixth in the nation with a completion percentage of 69 percent.

To plan for this, Florida has been using backup Tyler Murphy on the scout team to emulate Bridgewater in the Cardinals offense. The team features dual-threat quarterbacks similar to Bridgewater, which should also aid its preparations.

The Gators and Cardinals will face off in the 2013 Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on Jan. 2.
