Fan Fest day offers a little of everything ...RADIO TODAY -- SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
ACTIVITIES GALORE ON CAMPUS TODAY
If you're a Louisville sports fan, Floyd Street and beyond should be your destination today (listening to THE CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR while you're headed there, of course)...with five events taking place on the Belknap Campus.
Tailgaters for the Spring Football game are probably already out at Papa John's as this article is being written. The kickoff for the event is 1 p.m. in the Papa's Pizza Palace and record crowds are expected...given this beautiful Saturday weather Louisville is experiencing and the fact that Lamar Jackson is...well...Lamar Jackson, the most exciting quarterback in college football.
Things get underway earlier for the other events. Track and Field is having the Louisville Invitational and field events get underway at 11 a.m. at Cardinal Park. Situated on campus between Ulmer Stadium and the Louisville Lacrosse Stadium, it might be a fun way to start your day on Floyd Street.
At noon, the #5 Louisville Lacrosse team plays #11 Virginia in ACC action at the LLC. The Cards are 12-2 on the season and will look for their fourth in-conference win against a 7-6 Cavalier squad. Loucrosse will also be looking for a bit of payback...losing to Wahoo lacrosse last year in Charlottesville 17-9 in the inaugural meeting between the two programs.
Softball is hosting North Carolina Central for a double-header in Ulmer Stadium that will start around 3 p.m. The Cards are 27-9 overall and hold second place in the ACC with a 11-4 conference record.
NC Central doesn't appear to be a overwhelming foe...with a 4-35 record overall. The chances of catching the bags full of Cards and Spaldings flying over the fence today look to be pretty good.
Baseball will also jump into the sports frenzy with a 4 p.m. game at Patterson Stadium against Clemson.
Plenty to do and plenty to see on campus today! Parking could be at a premium but five different concession stands are at you call and beckon. Let the games begin!
Cardinal women's golf and rowing are also in action on the road today...participating in the ACC Championships (golf) and the Clemson Invitational.
