The Louisville Cardinals are back in action tomorrow against visiting Houston.

This is U of L’s first Saturday night game in several years.     Coach Charlie Strong has mixed opinions about the 7:00pm kickoff.

"I like those 3:30 (Saturday) games because you’re sitting there all day and you’re so anxious and you want to go play.   But I think just for the crowd it’s better (on) a Saturday night because they have all day to tailgate and get around their friends and have a good time, then they’ll come into the stadium and cheer us on," he said.
