The official blog for the University of Louisville football program announced on Wednesday night that the 1993 Louisville football team will be honored at halftime of Saturday’s game against Florida International.

The 1993 team went 9-3 overall as an independent program and defeated Michigan State in the Liberty Bowl. Howard Schnellenberger’s team also picked up regular season wins against Arizona State and destroyed Texas 41-10.

The 1993 team was the first to reach a bowl game since the program’s Fiesta Bowl win in 1991. Following the Liberty Bowl in 93, Louisville didn’t make another bowl game appearance until 1998 under John L. Smith.
