Press Release:

The University of Louisville’s non-conference football game with Western Kentucky on Sept. 14 at Nissan Stadium is slated for a 4 p.m. ET kickoff.

Louisville’s encounter against Western Kentucky at Nissan Stadium in Nashville is the second of a three-game series with the Hilltoppers. Dae Williams rushed for a pair of 1-yard touchdowns in the fourth quarter, including the go-ahead score with 5:01 remaining, as Louisville rallied from a 14-0 deficit to beat in-state rival Western Kentucky 20-17 last season.

The two programs have met 32 times on the gridiron, with the Cardinals holding a 20-12 all-time series advantage, and have won the last 10 meetings.

The 2019 matchup will feature the same as both Louisville and WKU will be led by first-year head coaches: Scott Satterfield and Tyson Helton.

The Cardinals are playing in Nashville for the first time since defeating Texas A&M 27-21 in the 2015 Music City Bowl. The Cardinals also took on Middle Tennessee in a non-conference matchup in 2006, winning 44-17.
