UofL has announced that the Cards week three match-up with the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers in Nashville will kickoff on 4:00 PM
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville’s non-conference football game with Western Kentucky on Sept. 14 at Nissan Stadium is slated for a 4 p.m. ET kickoff.
Louisville’s encounter against Western Kentucky at Nissan Stadium in Nashville is the second of a three-game series with the Hilltoppers. Dae Williams rushed for a pair of 1-yard touchdowns in the fourth quarter, including the go-ahead score with 5:01 remaining, as Louisville rallied from a 14-0 deficit to beat in-state rival Western Kentucky 20-17.
The two programs have met 32 times on the gridiron, with the Cardinals holding a 20-12 all-time series advantage and have won the last 10 meetings.
The 2019 matchup will feature the same as both Louisville and WKU will be led by first-year head coaches: Scott Satterfield and Tyson Helton.
The Cardinals are playing in Nashville for the first time since defeating Texas A&M 27-21 in the 2015 Music City Bowl. The Cardinals also took on Middle Tennessee in a non-conference matchup in 2006.
The Cardinals returns 17 starters from last season, highlighted by running back Hassan Hall, wide receivers Seth Dawkins and Dez Fitzpatrick, and offensive tackle Mekhi Becton. On defense, linebacker Dorian Etheridge and G.G. Robinson are key returnees.
