BOWL UPDATE : FIESTA : Quarterback Edge to Louisville

<i> Associated Press</i>

When Howard Schnellenberger was at Miami, he had such outstanding quarterbacks as Jim Kelly and Bernie Kosar.

Now in his sixth season at Louisville, he has another good one--Browning Nagle.

Nagle is 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds and can throw a football nearly 90 yards. In two years since transferring from West Virginia, he has passed for 16 touchdowns per season and a total of 4,653 yards, with 2,150 this year. He completed nearly 56% of his passes (146 of 263) while leading the No. 18 Cardinals to a 9-1-1 season and their first bowl game since 1977.

His counterpart on Tuesday, Alabama’s Gary Hollingsworth, finished the regular season with 1,463 yards, 13 interceptions and only four touchdowns.
