The fall sports season has now begun, and the teams at UofL are getting off to a great start. Surely, you are aware that the football team beat Miami 31-13 on Monday night. The Cardinal Catch Up focuses on the other sports at the University of Louisville. There are plenty worth keeping up with, and this is a short and simple way to find out how the other teams are doing, without having to read every detail of the games. However, if you want to do that, the press release is provided for you as an option.
*The men’s soccer team (1-0) defeated Maryland in their season opener at Lynn Stadium on Friday night. They jumped up all the way to #2 in the NSCAA Top 25. It is their highest national ranking since being #1 in 2011. Louisville sophomore midfielder Andrew Brody was named the ACC Player of the Week. They will host Cornell on Friday night at 8:30 pm ET, after the women’s match at 6 p.m. ET against Kentucky. Friday’s matches will be a “red-out” for the fans.
