The University of Louisville football will not get a bid to a Bowl Championship Series game this season.
The Cards’ chance for a BSC bid was foiled today by Cincinnati, which defeated Connecticut 35-27 in the teams’ final regular season game. Under the final Big East Conference standings and BCS rankings, the bid will likely go now to West Virginia.
U of L needed a Cincinnati loss to be eligible for the automatic bid, but the Cards will still get an invitation to another bowl.
Last year, U of L played in the Beef O’Brady’s Bowl in Florida, where coach Charlie Strong’s team defeated Southern Mississippi.
