The University of Louisville will hold its annual Spring Football Game on Friday, April 21 at 7 p.m. in L&N Stadium. Admission and parking to the game are free.
The Louisville football program is coming off an eight-win season and a win over Cincinnati in the Fenway Bowl. The Cardinals return 15 starters from that eight-win team, but have a new head coach in Jeff Brohm, who returns to his hometown after six successful seasons at Purdue.
The Cards bring back leading rusher Jawhar Jordan and three starters on the offensive line to highlight the offensive side of the ball. Leading the nation in sacks last season, the Cards return defensive lineman Ashton Gillotte, who recorded 6.0 sacks, and four defensive starters in the backfield in Jarvis Brownlee, Quincy Riley, Josh Minkins and M.J. Griffin.
Fans can watch the spring contest live on ACCNX, (ACC Network Extra) a streaming platform complementary to ACCN. It is accessible with your TV provider credentials through the ESPN App on smartphones, tablets, connected streaming devices or via espn.com/watch.
