After kicking Neil’s butt in the Orange Bowl we decided to play the Sugar Bowl. The Sugar Bowl features the Big East champion Louisville, and Florida the at-large qualifier. I decided to play as Florida and Neil as Louisville.
The game started with Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater completing a 66 yard touchdown pass to halfback Dominique Brown. The score was then 7-0 Louisville. Florida responded with wide receiver Andre Debose returning a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown to make the score 7-7. Florida star middle linebacker Jon Bostic then intercepted a pass from Bridgewater to set up an 8 yard rushing touchdown by running back Trey Burton. Cornerback Cody Riggs then returned another Louisville interception 26 yards for a touchdown to make the score 21-7. Debose returned a punt 71 yards for a touchdown to make the score 28-7 in Florida’s favor. Quarterback Jacoby Brissett (not Jeff Driskel surprisingly) threw a 24 yard touchdown pass to reciever Quinton Dunbar, after another Riggs interception, to make the score 35-7. Louisville then benched Bridgewater for quarterback Will Stein to set up a 72 yard touchdown pass to wide-out Eli Rogers. The two-point conversion failed, and after a failed onside kick by Louisville the score was 35-13 Florida at the end of the 1st quarter.
Not a lot of scoring in the second quarter though. Rogers caught another touchdown from Stein for 5 yards as well as the two-point conversion to make the score 35-21. Florida running back Mack Brown ran a 23 yard touchdown to make the score 42-21. Florida corner Marcus Roberson intercepted Klein, and Louisville middle linebacker Mike Addesa and safety Kamal Hogan each netted one pick, but that did little to influence the game. The score was 42-21 Florida at halftime.
Burton got another touchdown, this one from 44 yards out to make the score 49-21. Stein threw a touchdown pass to receiver Aaron Nance for 2 yards, as well as the two-point conversion to make the score 49-29. Burton got another touchdown from 74 yards to make the score 56-29. Stein then completed a 14 yard touchdown pass to Brown for his second touchdown of the game (two-point was successful too) to make the score 56-37. Brissett then threw a 12 yard touchdown pass (two-point conversion failed) to tight-end Colin Thompson to make the score 62-37. Thus the third quarter ended.
Burton got another rushing touchdown on a 9 yard run (two-point conversion failed) to make the score 68-37. Then the power went out when I began writing the recap so bear with me here. Wide receiver Andrell Smith caught a touchdown pass from Stein as well as the two-point to make the score 68-45. Burton then added two rushing touchdowns to make the score 82-45. The game then ended.
In conclusion Louisville is hohohorrible, and I’m 2-2 against Neil. This sets the stage for an epic national title game. I will be playing as Notre Dame and Neil as Alabama. Thanks for reading 🙂
