The Cards game vs Murray State on September 30th was long suspected to be a nooner. Thank goodness it is not. The ACC announces the game time in the following tweet:

55 (Season 2 Episode 2)



This week on 55……….

We talk commitments……HUGE commitments. How the Cards are doing under Bobby P. Red-White scrimmage tickets go on sale. Hot dogs, Nelson, Intrastate rivals and more. Is there one more big commitment in the CARDS for UofL this week? I say L yeah! So strap in, here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This ………55.


1) ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC………..I’m really not sure if I said it enough times but ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC. My bad, I know that was the same #1 as it was last week but so much more respect nationally just due to the conference switch. Much more fun league to be a part of as well. Got the following tweet right after the game….




3) Last year we would have “slipped by” or “escaped” This year we shut down a top ACC team. So proud of this team…..

Half of 2014 football schedule is set



Some of the most exciting announcements made during the summer are the kickoff times for Louisville football games. Anything involving football has added excitement this season because of the ACC. Things get started right away with the season opener against Miami. I don’t remember Louisville ever playing a team with such history and prestige in the season opener, especially during the even years.

So far, three of the Cards’ six home games have been set. Good news is, none are at noon. Even better news, one of those games is Murray State. So even that game is in the evening. Enough with the chit chat. Here is one half of the 2014 Louisville Cardinals football schedule!

Another game for the 2014 football season has its time set. When the Louisville Cardinals take on Murray State on September 6th at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, kickoff will be at 7 p.m. ET. This will be the second game of the season for the Cards.
