The University of Louisville football team will open its season against Ohio University on national television on Sunday, Sept. 1, with kickoff set for 3:30 p.m. at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
The game was originally scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 31, but was moved to accommodate ESPN’s opening-week football schedule.
UofL’s appearance on ESPN will be one of the program’s five nationally televised games this season. The Cardinals have a pair of Thursday night contests versus Rutgers and Cincinnati and two Friday night appearances versus Central Florida and Connecticut.
Ohio, guided by ninth-year head coach Frank Solich, return 16 starters from a team that went 9-4 a year ago and defeated Louisiana-Monroe 45-14 in the Independence Bowl.
