    5 Keys To The Schedule

    – It’s an interesting start. The Cardinals ease into things with Charlotte, but then they have to hit the ACC ground running with a trip to Syracuse followed up by the home showdown against Florida State. The next ACC game? At Clemson. They’ll know their Atlantic fate – for the most part – by the end of October 1st.

    – Going to Houston is a bear of a non-conference game late in the year, followed up by the rivalry game with Kentucky.

    – Missing Miami and North Carolina from the Coastal is a good deal. Facing Duke and going to Virginia isn’t bad.

    – That Houston game comes at the end of a rough run of three road games in four weeks. Going to Virginia and Boston College shouldn’t be bad if UofL is any good, but it’s late in the year. The body blows are going to accumulate.

    – WATCH OUT FOR …Wake Forest. It’s a sandwich game late in the year between road trips to Boston College and Houston. It’s the perfect letdown moment.
