Miami, Louisville mascots square off

So much for holiday spirit.

Over the last few days, the mascots for Miami and Louisville -- Sebastian the Ibis and Louie the Cardinal -- have been trading playful barbs in advance of the Dec. 28 Russell Athletic Bowl between the Hurricanes and Cards (ESPN, 6:45 ET).

If the action on the field is half as good as the mascot battle on Twitter, we should be in for quite a treat in Orlando.
