UofL FOOTBALL | Cards' Spring Game Moved to Friday

04/11/2018 04:07 PM

The Louisville football team’s Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Spring Game has been moved to Friday night at 7:30 p.m. ET inside Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

The game, which was originally scheduled for Saturday afternoon, was moved due to expected bad weather in the Louisville area on Saturday.

“With thunderstorms in the forecast on Saturday, the best decision for everyone involved was to move the game to Friday night,” UofL Director of Athletics Vince Tyra said in a press release. “In discussing with coach Petrino on Wednesday morning, we agreed for the safety of the players and fans that the best conclusion for everyone involved was to move the game to Friday night. The Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Spring Game was the first opportunity for our fans to see this team this spring and we didn’t want that impacted by the threat of heavy rains and lightning forecasted for the entire day.”

Parking lots will open at 2:30 p.m. ET on Friday, with gates opening at 6:30 p.m. ET.

At the conclusion of the UofL Spring Game, the Louisville football players will sign autographs for 45 minutes on the field. Head coach Bobby Petrino will be available after he addresses the media.
