Today the Cardinals released their schedule for the upcoming season. The Cardinals will enter their first season in the ACC with a pretty good schedule and a home schedule that will boast 9 nationally ranked teams. One of the highlights of the upcoming season will take place in Minneapolis, Minnesota as the Cards will partner with ND to take on Minnesota & Wisconsin in the ACC/B1G Challenge August 29-30. It will not however be a falls count anywhere match. Also we found out that the Lady Cards will be sporting new Uniforms this season:
Real smooth looking and different then what we are used to. It looks to be another banner year for the Cards as look for their 25th NCAA appearance. We will rekindle rivalries with old conference foes such as Syracuse, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech & Florida State. We will continue the fierce rivalries with former conference foe Cincinnati (that felt weird to say) and Kentucky. Below is the schedule for the upcoming season.
Janelle Jenkins had 10 kills and two blocks to lead the University of Louisville volleyball team to a 25-21, 25-17, 25-20 sweep of Middle Tennessee Tuesday night in Murfreesboro.
