Cards Nominated for Performance of the Week

The Louisville football team's 278 yards rushing and four touchdowns in last week's 56-49 win over Memphis has earned the Cardinals a nomination in this week's FedEx Air and Ground Team of the Week program.

Fans can vote for the potential candidates for the weekly award at www.fedexorangebowl.com as the Cards are up against Wisconsin and Virginia Tech in the Ground category this week. Voting will be allowed from Monday at 1 p.m. ET throught Thursday (Nov. 11) at 5 p.m. ET.

To celebrate the "delivery" of this season's BCS National Championship game at the 2005 FedEx Orange Bowl, FedEx is running the FedEx Air & Ground College Football Teams of the Week campaign. Each week, fans are encouraged to go to www.fedexorangebowl.com to vote for that week's top "air" and "ground" team performances named the FedEx Express and FedEx Ground teams of the week. Additionally, fans that vote will have a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to the 2005 FedEx Orange Bowl in Miami! In addition, the winners will be announced each Thursday on fedexorangebowl.com. FedEx will be promoting this awards program via online banners and with radio spots nationally and in key college football outlets.

In conjunction with the voting program, FedEx has announced that the company will make a donation of $25,000 to the general scholarship fund of the two teams that are voted as the FedEx Air & Ground College Football Teams of the Year. Each weekly FedEx Express and FedEx Ground team of the week is automatically eligible for the team of the year award. The winning teams will also be announced during halftime of the FedEx Orange Bowl telecast on ABC.
