The Louisville Cardinals return to college football action tomorrow, hosting North Carolina.

Coach Charlie Strong says the game will be a major test for the 19th ranked Cards, as they line up against the unranked but solid Tar Heels.

“I think this weekend we will find out exactly where we are as a football program and the steps that we need to continue to make the changes to this program to get it headed in the right direction,” Strong said.

Louisville is 2-0 with victories over Kentucky and Missouri State. North Carolina is 1-1 and coming off a one-point loss at Wake Forest. Kickoff is 3:30pm.

In Lexington, the Kentucky Wildcats host Western Kentucky.

“Western Kentucky was a real young team last year and improved tremendously from week to week and ended up winning seven of their last eight games,” said UK coach Joker Phillips.

Both teams are 1-1 on the season. Tomorrow’s kickoff is 7:00pm at Commonwealth Stadium.

Indiana returns to action tomorrow night. The 2-0 Hoosiers host Ball State.
