Cardinal tailgating enthusiasts may want to shield their eyes.
U of L announced on Monday that the Cards' Sept. 22 home game against Syracuse will begin at Noon. The game will be shown as the ESPN Regional Big East Game of the Week and will be broadcast locally on WHAS.
The Syracuse game is one of just two Saturday home games on this year's schedule, the other being an Oct. 27 game against Pittsburgh. The kickoff time for that game has not yet been decided.
Cardinal fans will have two more opportunities to try and squeeze some tailgating in between work and kickoff as U of L will host Utah on Friday, Oct. 5, and Rutgers on Thursday, Nov. 19.
