Louisville at Rutgers (-2)

It may not be a championship game in the traditional sense, but the Cardinals head to Jersey, with a BCS bid on the line for both teams.  OK, technically that’s not the case if Louisville wins due to a roughly 17 way tie atop the Big East, but it’s hard to imagine the Cardinals not heading to the Orange Bowl if the upset Rutgers.

Matt – Rutgers

Louisville is coming off back to back losses, and Teddy Bridgewater is dealing with a fractured wrist in his non-throwing wrist.  Why does that matter, you say?  Well for one, a fractured anything hurts, but more importantly, you have to think this is going to limit his ability to take snaps from under center. Rutgers is at home, in front of a sell out crowd, and sees South Beach at the end of the tunnel.  I don’t expect to be pretty, but I think the Scarlet Knights win this one and head off to the Orange Bowl.

Tim – Louisville

I’m tempted to take the Scarlet Knights at home but I really think Louisville wins this one outright. I really like them getting a couple points.

Craig – Louisville

Going to go with the team getting points because I don’t believe in either of these teams, and Teddy Bridgewater is a sweet name.

Corey – Rutgers

This is a tough game to predict, simply because both teams really have not looked good as of late.  Louisville once seemed like a lock to win the Big East, but they have stumbled of late.  Rutgers also has not particularly good either.  Since the Scarlet Knights are at home, I think they will win this game by at least a field goal, so I’ll take them laying the 2 points to go to the Orange Bowl.
