UofL FOOTBALL | One Day Away from the Big Game

09/15/2017 02:37 PM

The big match-up is only one day away from taking place.

The #14 Louisville Cardinals (2-0) play host to the #3 Clemson Tigers (2-0) in what is the the biggest game of Cards’ season up to this point.

Kickoff is set for 8:12 p.m. ET inside Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium on Saturday.

It will be a re-match of last year’s thriller between the two teams, in which the Tigers escaped with a 42-36 win in Death Valley.

790 KRD radio host Howie Lindsey joined Sports Night this week to preview Saturday’s ACC clash:

Anderson also discussed the impact the loss of Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander would have on the team Saturday if indeed he does not play. Alexander injured himself in the team’s regular season opener against Purdue:
