Louisville captured a shocking 33-23 Sugar Bowl victory over Florida last night, and to be honest, it was never really close.It was the biggest upset in BCS Bowl history, with the Cardinals winning as 14.5-point underdogs, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

They were just the third double-digit underdog to win a BCS bowl since the series was established in 1998, joining Ohio State’s team in 2002 and Oklahoma in 2000.

Miami was favoured by 12 points against the Buckeyes in the 2002 BCS National Championship, and Florida State was given 11.5 points to the Sooners in the 2000 national title game.

To put things in perspective, Northern Illinois was a 13.5-point underdog against Florida State in the Orange Bowl. The Huskies lost by 21.
