Auburn might be closer but the Atlanta trip is also a homecoming for the University of Louisville

Saturday afternoon Louisville and 6th ranked Auburn kick off the season in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. The Tigers have the shorter trip, based just 90 minutes from Atlanta. However there are many Cards who will have their own supporters in the stands Saturday.

That’s because many of the UofL players come from the southeast, and know many of the Auburn players. There has been a lot of texting going on in the days leading up to the game. Tony Rawlings is covering the contest for cn2 sports and sets the scene from Atlanta.
