Louisville will start Justin Burke at quarterback in Beef O'Brady's Bowl

Louisville head coach Charlie Strong announced Monday morning that senior quarterback Justin Burke will start at quarterback for Louisville when the Cardinals face Southern Mississippi in the Beef O'Brady's Bowl on Dec. 21.

Strong added that fellow quarterbacks Adam Froman and Will Stein are both practicing and will be available for action on game day.

Burke started the final four games of the season for U of L, but left the season-finale against Rutgers in the first half due to back spasms. He was relieved by Stein, a sophomore and former walk-on, who went the rest of the way in a 40-13 victory for the Cards.

Froman, also a senior, started Louisville's first eight games before going down with a thigh injury. He has thrown for 1,633 yards and 11 touchdowns with four interceptions.

The safe money here is on both players seeing the field on Dec. 21, and I'm good with that (Charlie values my opinion). There's really not much difference between the two quarterbacks, and this game should serve as a reward for both. Now if Burke's setting the world on fire and the Golden Eagles are consistently scoring right back then we may not see too much of a Froman, but I'd still be stunned if the Ginja Ninja spent the whole game on the sidelines.
