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.
