FINAL: Florida 23 Louisville 33

The Louisville cardinals shocked a nation tonight. 

Louisville intercepted Jeff Driskel's first pass of the game and returned it for a touchdown.The Cardinals would never trail after that first play. The Cardinals defense then forced a three-and-out and Bridgewater led a 12-play, 83-yard touchdown drive to extend their lead to 14 points. 

Florida was able to go into the locker room at halftime down 24-10 but a disastrous play doomed them to start the third quarter. Florida went for a quick onside attempt and not only did Louisville recover at the Florida 49-yard line, but the Gators were hit with two personal fouls that gave the Cardinals the ball at Florida's 19-yard line. 

Bridgewater found Damian Copeland on the very next play with a beautiful pass and catch for a touchdown. 

Florida's defense came up with a couple of big stops, and blocked an extra point but the offense couldn't capitalize and never really got into a rhythm. Credit Louisville's defense for coming in with a good gameplan and forcing Florida to throw the ball more than they are used to. 

Charlie Strong and the Louisville Cardinals are your 2013 Sugar Bowl champions.
