Cards bring the heat to Orlando beating Miami 36-9 in Russell Athletic Bowl

ORLANDO, FL (WAVE) – The University of Louisville Cardinals clinched a win at Saturday's Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando.

The matchup between Louisville and Miami was about more than playing for a trophy; it was a look ahead to next season's conference realignment when the Cardinals move to the ACC. Miami appeared in its first bowl game since 2010 and hasn't had a bowl victory since 2006.

With the leadership of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and some solid teamwork, the Cards celebrate a victory beating Miami 36-9.
