UofL FOOTBALL | Cards To Face Ole Miss in 2021 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game

09/19/2017 01:41 PM

The Louisville football team will face Ole Miss for the first time in school history during the 2021 season, as both teams will square off in the 2021 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game inside Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The exact date will be determined at a later date.

“To have the opportunity to play in this game again for the second time is a huge win for our program,” said UofL Vice President and Director of Athletics Tom Jurich.

It will be the second time that the Cardinals will have played in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game. In 2015, UofL fell to Auburn 31-24.
