Louisville, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - The Louisville Cardinals have accepted a bid to the 2013 Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando, Florida on Dec. 28.

The 19th-ranked Cardinals officially accepted the bid following Thursday's 31-24 overtime win against Cincinnati that clinched the AAC for Central Florida, which also earned the conference's automatic BCS bowl bid.

Louisville will be making its 18th bowl appearance in school history and fourth in as many years.

The Cardinals defeated fourth-ranked Florida 33-23 in last season's Sugar Bowl and have won three of their last four postseason appearances.
