2013 bowl game schedule: Florida faces Lousiville tonight in Sugar Bowl

Sam Greenwood

The Gators could finish the season with 12 wins if they can defeat the Cardinals in New Orleans.

With New Year's Day behind us, the college football bowl season has begun to wind down. Six games remain, including next week's national championship game between No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama. Tonight's Sugar Bowl presents the most local interest, with No. 3 Florida vs. No. 21 Louisville. The entire 2012-2013 bowl schedule can be found here.

The Gators opened as a 14.5 point favorite against the Cardinals in the Sugar Bowl. Florida finished 11-1 overall and 5-2 in the SEC during the regular season. The Gators tied Georgia for first place in the SEC East, but they lost head-to-head tiebreaker that kept them out of an SEC title game against Alabama.

Louisville comes into the Sugar Bowl as the Big East champion. The Cardinals won a four-way tiebreaker to earn that conference's automatic BCS bid. Louisville finished 10-2 in the regular season and 5-2 in conference play.

Tonight's game is set for 8:30 PM EST, and can be seen on ESPN.
