The University of Louisville football team will begin its 2017 spring practices on March 21st. Practices will be primarily on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. There is one switch on the Friday practices, as the team will practice on the Thursday before the spring game, not the Friday before. The Cards are also slated to have two Saturday practices, April 1st and April 8th.
This year’s spring game will fall on Saturday, April 15th.

It has not been announced what practices will be open to the public.
While spring games aren’t always an indicator on how the following season will look/playout, last year fans got an early glimpse on what would be an incredible season for Lamar Jackson, a season that ended with Louisville getting its first Heisman winner.
One thing that fans will more than likely look to (other than Lamar throwing 10 touchdowns in the first half) is how the offensive line will look. Petrino made changes to the staff in the offseason by moving former offensive line coach Chris Klenakis to tight end’s coach and bringing Mike Summers to coach the line. Summers previously held this position under Petrino during Petrino’s first stint at Louisville. The Cardinals also signed five offensive linemen in this year’s recruiting class.
