This will mark the 20th bowl appearance for the Louisville program

The University of Louisville has accepted an invitation to represent the ACC in the 18th Music City Bowl on Wednesday, December 30 in Nashville, Tenn.

The game will mark the 20th bowl appearance and sixth straight. The Cardinals will face Texas A&M of the SEC at Nissan Stadium in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.

“The University of Louisville is so excited to be headed to Nashville for the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl,” Vice-President/Athletics Director Tom Jurich said. “We have the opportunity to take our young team to a great bowl game and compete against an outstanding opponent from the SEC in Texas A&M.

“We have heard outstanding things about the hospitality that the teams and fans receive from the people at the Music City Bowl. The real winners though are our fans, who I know are excited to have the opportunity to make the short drive to Nashville and experience what the city and bowl has to offer.”

This will be the fourth meeting between the two programs, with the Aggies claiming all three prior meetings, the last a 26-10 win in 1994, Howard Schnellenberger's final season on the Cardinals sideline.

Texas A&M, coached by Kevin Sumlin, is 8-4 overall and is among the top 50 nationally in both total offense and defense. The Aggies four defeats came at the hands of Alabama, Ole Miss, Auburn and LSU.

Louisville has an overall bowl record of 9-9-1.
