Belk matches No. 13 Georgia, No. 20 Louisville

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) No. 13 Georgia meets No. 20 Louisville on Dec. 30 in a Belk Bowl matchup that matches Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Grantham against his former team.

Grantham was Georgia's defensive coordinator from 2010-13 before taking over the same position at Louisville this season.

Both teams have withstood injuries to key players.

Georgia (9-3) lost running back Todd Gurley to a torn anterior cruciate ligament after he returned from a four-game suspension. Louisville (9-3) lost starting quarterback Will Gardner to a knee injury last month, and receiver DeVante Parker missed the first seven games of the season with a foot injury.

Georgia is 13th and Louisville is 21st in the College Football Playoff standings that were released Sunday. The Cardinals closed the regular season on a three-game winning streak.
