From U of L:

Details of the University of Louisville's 2017 football schedule are beginning to come into focus.

The Atlantic Coast Conference on Wednesday announced the television and times for the Cardinals' first three games of the season.

Louisville opens the season with a neutral-site contest on Sept. 2 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind., against Purdue in a 7:30 p.m. kickoff to be televised nationally by FOX. It is the first meeting between the two schools since 1987.

The Cardinals start the league portion of their schedule on Sept. 9 at North Carolina, with a noon contest on either ABC, ESPN, or ESPN2.

Clemson, the 2017 national champions, will serve as Louisville's first home game. The matchup between the schools is set for Sept. 16 at 3:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on either ABC, ESPN, or ESPN2.
