Unfortunately for Louisville fans, the schedule is just as dreadful as we expected. The schedule features seven home games and two Friday night games. Those are fun, right? The Cards will also play two games this season on Thursday nights. Surprisingly there are three bye weeks this season.
Regardless of the competition in 2013, there is still plenty to be excited about. Louisville will likely start the season ranked in the top ten and have a Heisman hopefully in Teddy Bridgewater.
Although there won’t be any big time opponents coming to PJCS in 2013, Cardinal fans still need to try and pack the stadium each and every game to show their support for this team and show the ACC what they’ll be getting in 2014.
