Brett McMurphy of ESPN is reporting that Louisville will replace San Diego State and Boise State on the 2013 schedule with Temple and Houston. The Cards will play at Houston and at home against Temple.
San Diego State and Boise State were both slated to leave the Mountain West and join the Big East in 2013. Over the past two months, both schools decided to stay put in the Mountain West due to the departure of many other Big East teams. SMU is the only Big East team that Louisville won’t play next season.
Unfortunately for Louisville, in what is expected to be their best season in school history, the Cards will play one of the worst schedules in the country among BCS teams. We’re all still holding out hope that Tom Jurich is able to add an elite level non conference opponent to the 2013 schedule. Fingers crossed!
