Florida Insists Sugar Bowl Foe Louisville is Legit
Florida seniors Jon Bostic and Omar Hunter say they're are done dwelling on what might have been if not for their lone loss to Georgia.
After finishing third in the BCS standings, one spot too low to play for a national title in Miami, the Gators say they remain motivated heading into Wednesday night's Sugar Bowl against two-touchdown underdog Louisville.
Hunter suggests a victory for fourth-ranked Florida (11-1) over No. 22 Louisville (10-2) would be a "program changer," because Florida went the past two seasons without a BCS bowl bid and barely qualified for a bowl at all last year.
Louisville is out to prove it can play with the best in the mighty Southeastern Conference, and safety Calvin Pryor says he expects the Cardinals to "shock the world."
