After an entire season void of noon kickoffs for home football games, Louisville fans are already feeling the vengeance of 2015.
U of L's second game of the 2015 season, a Sept. 12 home tilt against Houston, will kickoff at noon and will be carried on the ACC Regional Sports Network. The Cards will open the season on Sept. 5 in Atlanta for the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game against Auburn, and then will follow up the Houston game with a huge Thursday night tilt against Clemson on Sept. 17. That game is set to kickoff at 7:30 p.m. and will be televised by ESPN.
