Louisville Cards to Appear in Orange Bowl

The Louisville Cardinals will showcase their skills in the FedEx Orange Bowl tonight, Jan. 2, 2006.

The 11-1 Cards are favored to beat Wake Forest in a BCS debut for both teams. A win would give the Cards their the best season ever.
For the 11-2 Demon Deacons this season's success is a bit of a surprise. Their quarterback is a red-shirt freshman who had to step in from the beginning after their first and second string quarterbacks suffered injuries in pre-season scrimmages.

The Orange Bowl starts at 7 p.m. central time on WBKO-Fox.
