After a week off, the University of Louisville football team is back in action Saturday against Arkansas State.

Coach Charlie Strong says his team will have to adjust to the absence of senior wide receiver Doug Beaumont, who’s out indefinitely after undergoing knee surgery.

“Doug does a lot for us, and what’s key, we have other guys, and other guys got to step up and then they have to play. We have enough guys that have not been playing well and need to do their job and guys understand that,” he said.

Kickoff in Jonesboro, Arkansas, where it’s also homecoming, is 7:00pm. The Cards have a 1-2 record; the Red Wolves are 1-3.

The Kentucky Wildcats return to action Saturday at Mississippi, while Indiana hosts Michigan.
