The University of Louisville’s third men’s basketball season in the Atlantic Coast Conference will include a challenging slate of 18 games, including two games each against Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Virginia in 2016-17. Matchups for the next two seasons were announced today by the ACC.
“Even while we are in the exciting stretch run of our current season, it’s intriguing to look ahead to the next two-years which will again feature highly anticipated matchups and rivalries,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford.
The 2016-17 season will be the third year of a 12-year schedule rotation during which teams that are not partners play five years at home only; five years on the road only; and two years both home and road. The Cardinals will have designated rivals Pittsburgh and Virginia both home and away each of the next two seasons as each team will face 10 opponents once and four twice. Dates and times will be announced at a later date.
The Cardinals’ home ACC opponents in 2016-17 will consist of Clemson, Duke, Miami, NC State, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Virginia and Virginia Tech. UofL’s nine league road games will be at Boston College, Florida State, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Virginia, and Wake Forest.

Louisville is among four ACC teams currently ranked among the nation’s top 13. Both the 2017 and 2018 ACC postseason tournaments will be played at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
