The University of Louisville Cardinals will return home after a 3-game road stretch to face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the KFC Yum! Center.

The Cards swept its 3-game road run with wins at Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Duke and were bumped up to #6 in the nation. Georgia Tech (8-10, 3-5 ACC) has had some serious ups and downs. The highs include wins over NC State, Nebraska and North Carolina……. while the lows include a 34-point loss to Syracuse at home, an 18-point loss to Ball State at home, and an 11-point loss to Houston at home.

Still the Ramblin’ Wreck have played some tight contests and come up short, losing by 4 at Georgia, losing by 1 vs. Arkansas, losing by 9 vs. Duke, losing by 4 vs. Notre Dame, and losing by 5 to Virginia. This GT team can be a little bit of a mystery on which team might show up on a given night, and they’ve proven that they can be a ‘tough out’ when things are going well.
