LOUISVILLE, KY (WDRB) -- Deja vu all over again.
The University of Louisville football team will play the Florida Gators in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on January 2nd, sources close to the matter confirmed to WDRB News.
It was just past spring when the University of Louisville men's basketball team drew the national spotlight in New Orleans during the Final Four.
The official announcement that U of L would play Florida was expected to be made Sunday night during a prime time sports special that aired on ESPN. Prior to that broadcast, WDRB News and its reporters were able to confirm that U of L was headed to play in the Superdome in New Orleans.
"It's been a great week, a great week for the university... We need to rest (Teddy)... We need to get Teddy Bridgewater healthy," Head coach Charlie Strong told reporters during a teleconference Sunday night.
Bridgewater, U of L's starting quarterback, suffered a broken wrist and an ankle injury but managed to lead his team to a win last week over Big East conference rival Rutgers University.
During the teleconference, Strong also gave a lot of credit to his former school.
"Florida was a win away from the national title game. We're nowhere near that."
Online media began reporting late Saturday night that Charlie Strong's Cardinals could face his former team in the Florida Gators. But the reality wasn't confirmed until later on.
Twitter accounts for Charlie Strong and sports information director Kenny Klein were silent about where the team was headed prior to the announcement Sunday night.
WDRB News sports team will keep you updated on the news out of New Orleans. The game is slated for 8:30 p.m. on January 2nd in New Orleans.
