As expected, Louisville has officially accepted a bid to the Belk Bowl. The Cards will face off with North Carolina State on December 27 in Charlotte. Here is the statement from athletic director Tom Jurich:
“We are very excited for the opportunity to bring our football team and fans to the Belk Bowl. Charlotte is a wonderful city, and we are playing in an NFL stadium against a high-quality opponent in NC State. Charlotte is close in proximity for our fans and could be an easy drive after the Christmas holiday. This game is a reward for a great coaching job by Charlie (Strong) and the staff, and a great reward for our team, which exceeded everyone’s expectations and won the BIG EAST title. It’s also a great reward for our fans to travel to a great destination to see two very good teams face off against one another.”

Head coach Charlie Strong had this to say about UofL’s bowl destination:
“We are thrilled to accept an invitation to the Belk Bowl. Charlotte is a great city, and I’m so excited to take this team to another great bowl game. I’m so proud of our football team and coaching staff to be 2-4 earlier this season and end the year by winning five of the last six games and become BIG EAST champions. We have fought through a lot of adversity this year and to end the year with a high-quality bowl game versus a tough opponent like NC State is a great way to end the year.”
