NCAA Football: Clemson at Louisville Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

With the ACC releasing its complete schedule for the 2018 football season, we now know what Louisville’s full slate for next fall is going to look like.

Here it is:

Sept. 1: vs. Alabama (in Orlando)

Sept. 8: vs. Indiana State

Sept. 15: vs. Western Kentucky

Sept. 22: at Virginia

Sept. 29: vs. Florida State

Oct. 5 (Friday): vs. Georgia Tech

Oct. 13: at Boston College

Oct. 20: Bye.

Oct. 27: vs. Wake Forest

Nov. 3: at Clemson

Nov. 9 (Friday): at Syracuse

Nov. 17: vs. NC State

Nov. 24: vs. Kentucky

Real quick thoughts:

—This is going to be one of the most challenging schedules Louisville football has seen, and it’s made even more difficult with the short weeks after both Florida State and Clemson. Facing Georgia Tech’s triple option attack on short rest feels especially unfair.

—I’ve been to Clemson in September and October and it hasn’t worked, so let’s see if November is more friendly.

—At least the bye is sandwiched in the middle of the season this year.

—Have we ever played in the Carrier Dome on a Saturday besides the year where they handed us our first loss. Feels like that game is perennially on a Friday.
