A Labor Day showdown with Miami to open the season and a Thursday night clash with defending national champion Florida State highlight Louisville's football schedule in its first season as a member of the ACC.
This is what patience being rewarded looks like:
|Sept. 6||Home||Murray State|
|Sept. 20||Away||Florida International|
|Sept. 27||Home||Wake Forest|
|Oct. 18||Home||NC State|
|Oct. 30||Home||Florida State|
|Nov. 8||Away||Boston College|
|Nov. 22||Away||Notre Dame|
If you've been holding onto your season tickets with the hope that this day would one day come, this is your moment.
"As a head coach, this is the type of schedule you want to play each year," head coach Bobby Petrino said in a release. "To open the season against a high-profile opponent like Miami on Labor Day is every exciting, as we officially begin play in the ACC. It's a very challenging schedule, but one that our fans and players can be really excited about."
This is going to be terrific.
