After a week off, the University of Louisville Cardinals return to the football field Saturday.

U of L plays its third straight road game with a visit to Pittsburgh.

To accommodate television coverage, the game will have an unusual kickoff time of 11:00am, which doesn’t bother Cards’ coach Charlie Strong.

"It’s going to be an early rise. So we get up early. When you get up you don’t have much time at all, it’s time to go play the football game. Which is good, I like that, I like getting up," Strong said.
