The ACC Digital Network gets you ready for the Louisville-Clemson tilt.
In a rather under-the-radar kind of way, news broke that Louisville and UK extended their football series to 2019. The two teams will continue to play on the last game of the season. Your Cardinals have won three straight and lead the modern series 12-8.
The most recent extension to the contract, dated July 1, 2014 and signed by both athletic directors, continues the Kentucky-Louisville series on the last game of the regular-season:
- Nov. 25, 2017 in Lexington, KY
- Nov. 24, 2018 in Louisville, KY
- Nov. 30, 2019 in Lexington, KY
From 1994 through 2006, Kentucky and Louisville met the opening weekend of the season. Then in 2007, the match-up was moved to the third game when played in Lexington but remained as the season-opener when played at Louisville.
With the Kentucky-Louisville rivalry moved to the regular-season finale beginning this season, the match-up now coincides with several other ACC-SEC rivalry games, including Clemson-South Carolina, Florida-Florida State, and Georgia-Georgia Tech.
