The Louisville football team will now have three weeks between its penultimate and final games of the 2020 regular season.
The Cardinals were originally scheduled to play Boston College this Friday, Nov. 27. That game got moved back to Dec. 12 because of Covid issues with the Miami football team, and U of L’s game with Wake Forest —originally scheduled for Dec. 5 — was moved to Nov. 28.
Well, now we’ve got some more changes.
The Boston College game will now be played this Saturday, Nov. 18, but the regular season finale against the Demon Deacons has been pushed all the way back to Dec. 19.
Kickoff times and TV designations for both games will be announced at a later date.
Imagine being a college kid who has to spend the first three weeks of December not seeing other human beings and practicing in the freezing cold all so you can play a (let’s be honest) pretty meaningless game against a subpar opponent on Dec. 19.
I hope there’s a bowl game after that, because these kids deserve something a little bit more fun to end the year.
