No game with Texas A&M or other surprises on the 2013 University of Louisville football schedule announced Wednesday but there’s still time for the network folks to get that worked out.
Just getting a look at the schedule, however, generates enthusiasm for UofL football fans, anticipating a memorable transition year from the Big East and the yet-to-be-named conference to the Atlantic Coast Conference for the 2014 season.
Two Thursday and Friday games, indicating that Louisville football will be featured on the ESPN network at least four times. With Teddy Bridgewater calling signals, expect at least two or three more nationally telecast games.
Interesting that Cincinnati is the final game, replacing Rutgers as the season finale for the first time since UofL joined the league in 2005. Imagine playing a tradition rival in the last game.
An unprecedented three open dates should provide more opportunity to recover from inevitable injuries.
The train leaves the station in six months.
