Louisville began the season as one of those teams that was rising the ranks and it seemed like the sky was the limit. The Cardinals defeated Florida State by 43 points and it looked like the national title wasn’t completely out of the question. Two losses in the final three weeks changed that.
However, Lamar Jackson was the best player in college football, winning the first Heisman Trophy in school history. He finished the regular season with 3,390 passing yards and 30 touchdowns to go along with 1,538 yards and 21 more scores on the ground.
This year’s Citrus Bowl looks like one of the most intriguing matchups of the bowl season, and it isn’t even part of the New Year’s Six bowl game this year. The timing of this game is just a little bit off — the Citrus Bowl has been played on New Year’s Day for the vast majority of years since the 1980s. But this year, it falls on New Year’s Eve, prior to the Playoff semifinal games getting underway.
LSU is looking to cap off a successful season under once-interim, now-permanent head coach Ed Orgeron, who led the Tigers to a 5-2 mark after LSU fired Les Miles. The Tiger offense will have to turn to running back Derrius Guice against the Louisville defense, as junior Leonard Fournette is not playing in the bowl to prepare for the upcoming NFL Draft. Fournette did play in LSU’s final game against Texas A&M on Thanksgiving.
