We’ve known who and where but after today’s announcement of the 2020 Louisville football schedule we know when.

The 2019 schedule was looked at to be one of the toughest in recent memory with games against Notre Dame, Clemson, Kentucky, Miami, and others featured. Yet Scott Satterfield and the Louisville football program were able to put together an eight-win season that concluded with a massive win over Mississippi State that has momentum at an all-time high.

Coming off of that win the national perception of the Louisville program has completely changed from what it was heading into the 2019 season as the Cardinals look to be a legitimate top 25 team. With the bulk of their offense and defense returning, including 16 out of 22 starters, Scott Satterfield has the chance to do something special in 2020 in just his second season.

Now with the 2019 season chapter closed all eyes have turned to the preparation of 2020, including the Cards pursuit of a few more players for their roster as well as the work behind closed doors.

It’s hard to look ahead to a new season with knowing the schedule, which is where we’ve been for the last few weeks. The opponents have been known for some time now, but now we can really begin to predict what next season holds for the Cardinals after the schedule was released on Wednesday.
