College Football: Cards Get Belk Bowl Bid; 'Toppers Headed to Bahamas

The University of Louisville football team will play Georgia in the Belk Bowl this month in Charlotte, North Carolina.           

Louisville is 21st and Georgia is 13th in the College Football Playoff standings that were released Sunday. Both teams closed the regular season with a 9-3 record. 

It’s a matchup that pits Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Grantham  against his former team.

The game will be played Dec. 30. U of L played in the Belk Bowl in 2011, losing to North Carolina State.

Western Kentucky and Central Michigan will meet again in the postseason, this time in the Bahamas Bowl on Christmas Eve.

It's a rematch of each team's most recent bowl trip, when Central Michigan won 24-21 in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl in 2012.
