LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The University of Louisville has moved its first game of the season to Wednesday, Sept. 2.
The decision comes after the Kentucky Oaks and Derby were moved to the weekend of Sept. 3-5 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Thurby, the day locals head to the track, would have coincided with Louisville's home opener against NC State.
"We appreciate the NCAA, ACC, and NC State honoring our request for a date change for the opening game," Tyra said. "We are trying to be thoughtful about the shared city resources needed to host a football game and Thurby at the same time."
Kickoff time will be announced at a later day.
