Counting the bye week, it will be have been a long 4 weeks in between home games for the Louisville football team. And with the Big East home opener against South Florida now officially set, we can all finally get out of this tailgate-withdrawal. UofL announced today that the game on October 20th will be carried on ABC (regional coverage) and will kickoff at 3:30. After a string of Noon starts over the past several seasons, it’s nice to be relevant once again and receive some decent time-slots. Furthermore, it’ll be nice not to have to watch the game on a computer screen or through an additional pay-cable provider. Louisville defeated South Florida the day after Thanksgiving in Tampa last year, 34-24, as Teddy Bridgewater went for 241 yards and 3 scores. DeVante Parker had 2 touchdown catches and Dominique Brown led the way on the ground with 69 yards and a touchdown.
I don’t know how accurate this 30-day weather forecasting system is, but they’re predicting around 68 degrees and sunny.
I’ll take it.
