ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Louisville will play Miami in the Russell Athletic Bowl Dec. 28 in Orlando.

The 18th-ranked Cardinals (11-1) entered the preseason as the American Athletic Conference favorite, but blew a 21-point lead in their lone loss of the season to BCS-bound UCF.

The loss also dealt a blow to the Heisman Trophy campaign for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

The Atlantic Coast Conference's Hurricanes (9-3) won their first seven games of the season and were ranked in the Top 10 before losing three in a row to Florida State, Virginia Tech and Duke.

Miami recovered to win its final two games of the year and will be playing in its first bowl game since 2010. The Hurricanes had a self-imposed bowl ban in 2011 and 2012 because of an NCAA investigation.
