The time and channel have been set for Louisville’s next home football game against the Houston Cougars on Saturday November 16. The game will kickoff at 7:00 pm ET and be shown on ESPNU.
This game gets a LOT bigger if Houston can beat UCF this Saturday. If that happens, and the Cards beat Houston, and then Houston does not lose anymore, the Cards would almost certainly win the 3-way tie between themselves, Houston, and UCF and win the BCS bid. Houston plays at UCF this Saturday at 7:00 on ESPN2.
There are some exciting games this week in college football. The great thing about Louisville playing a weeknight game (to me) is getting to enjoy watching other games all day Saturday. Teams in the Top 10 have some tough match-ups, highlighted by a pair of Top 5 teams squaring off. That surely gives Louisville the chance to make a move in the polls, but will a team jump ahead of the Cards? Here are the games to keep an eye on this weekend!
