Another National Champion Crowned

Despite a fumble that apparently was not a fumble (at least the refs could not clearly determine who came up with it), the Louisville Cardinals defeated their former Conference USA rival Southern Miss to take the Beef O’Brady’s Bowl in St. Petersburg, Florida.  Hey, what’s a national championship without a little controversy.  But at least this championship game was close; the previous three played on Saturday were snoozers.  Chris Philpot kicked a 36-yard field goal with just over six minutes remaining to win it for first year head coach Charlie Strong and the Cardinals.  For Southern Miss head coach Larry Fedora, that’s two straight national championship losses since winning the New Orleans Bowl National Championship in 2008.

So big ups to the Louisville Cardinals!  Your 2010 Beef O’Brady’s Bowl National Champions!!!!!
