The ACC announced Sunday that Louisville's game at Pittsburgh this Saturday will begin at 3:45 p.m. and will be carried by ESPNews. The game will be the first Saturday contest that the Cards have played on one of the ESPN family of networks since losing at Florida State back on Oct. 17.
Even though the game isn't being played at home, a later start time should come as a welcome relief for U of L fans suffering from nooner fatigue. Louisville's 12:30 game against Virginia on Saturday marked the sixth time this season that Cardinals started play on a Saturday at either noon or 12:30. The two non-week night exceptions have been a 3:30 kickoff against Auburn in Atlanta, and a 6 p.m. start against Samford back on Sept. 26.
Pitt enters this weekend's game with a 5-1 conference record and a legitimate shot to win the Coastal Division and play for the ACC championship. That shot would disappear with a loss to Louisville, which has won four in a row and six of its last seven heading into its ACC finale.
