Louisville & Houston square off in a much anticipated re-match of last year’s contest.  This year the Cards travel to Houston and will face an ailing Greg Ward, Jr. & a stout Houston Defense.  Tom Herman’s squad has had this game vs. UofL circled since the Cougar’s season-opening trouncing of the Oklahoma Sooners.
