NEW ORLEANS (AP) - No. 4 Florida will meet No. 22 Louisville in the Sugar Bowl.
Despite finishing behind Georgia in the Southeastern Conference East Division, Florida (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) was a likely candidate for the Sugar Bowl because the winner of Saturday's SEC title game, Alabama, is headed to the BCS championship, while Georgia, which beat Florida and won the SEC East, was left with two losses and a lower BCS ranking than the one-loss Gators.
Louisville (10-2, 5-2 Big East) finished in a tie for Big East championship but earned its invitation to a BCS bowl thanks to having the highest BCS ranking of any team in the league. The Cardinals opened the season 9-0 before falling to Syracuse and Connecticut, but then beat Rutgers to lock up their league's BCS bid.
The Sugar Bowl is Jan. 2
