(MIAMI, FL) - Brian Brohm threw for 311 yards, and the Losuiville Cardinals overcame a bunch of mistakes to beat the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, 24-13, in the Orange Bowl.
The Cardinals got control early in the game before Wake turned Louisville's sloppy play into points. Both teams mustered over 800 yards in total offense combined.
Sam Swank and Art Carmody exchanged field goals for the Cards and Demons in the first quarter, but the Cardinals put the ball in the end zone first on a trick play as receiver Patrick Carter threw a pass to RB Anthony Allen for a 21-yard TD pass.
The Tuesday Morning Quarterback, Playoffs
Well the playoffs are set, the NFC avoided a sub .500 team as the Giants won a game to get in and finished 8-8. This means three teams from the NFC East are in.
The Eagles win the division and the Giants and Dallas stagger in.
The Chiefs needed a miracle and a win and they got it, so Kansas City is in as are the other New Yorkers, the Jets, who beat the Raiders to get in. So we got the Colts vs. Chiefs, and Seahawks vs. Cowboys on Saturday, then on Sunday we have Pats-Jets and Eagles-Giants.
(PASADENA, CA) - The last time the USC Trojans were in the physical Rose Bowl, they were denied the opportunity to take a trip to Glendale, Arizona to play for the national title.
This time, they were in the stadium playing the bowl game of the same name, and facing up against a team everybody thought should be playing Ohio State for the title, all except the sports writers who voted, of course.
John David Booty threw for 391 yards and four TDs, and Dwayne Jarrett possibly ended his college career with 11 catches and 205 yards, plus two touchdowns helping USC beat the Wolverines of Michigan, 32-18.
