Whereas we don’t know who will take Marshall’s spot in 2014, we found out that there will indeed be decent replacement in rotation in 2015 & 2016. It was announced today that The University of Houston agreed to a home and home with Louisville playing first in Louisville in 2015, then in Houston in 2016.
“We’ve been committed to scheduling quality opponents that reward our fans and provide great competition for our team. When you look at the success sustained by Louisville, we feel like we’ve covered those two factors,” said Mack Rhoades, UH vice president for intercollegiate athletics. “We’ve had great competition with Louisville in the past as evident by the series record, and we look forward to keeping the spirited rivalry alive.”

It’s UL/uk game week, so every morning I will update you on the betting odds for this weekends Governors Cup matchup. The spread opened Sunday with Louisville + 7.5.

The first AP Top 25 poll of the season has been released and this is what the top 10 looks like:
The Cards move up one spot from #9 to #8. If you notice the Cards almost caught up to “Johnny Football” at #7, maybe we will get the respect to move up as the season goes, I hope so.
