The Louisville Cardinals changed the date for their 2018 spring football game because of a bad weather forecast for Saturday according to Rivals.com.
Louisville moved the game up 17 and a half hours to 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday night. It was initially scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Saturday.
“With thunderstorms in the forecast on Saturday, the best decision for everyone involved was to move the game to Friday night,” Louisville athletic director Vince Tyra said. “In discussing with coach (Bobby) Petrino on Wednesday morning, we agreed for the safety of the players and fans that the best conclusion for everyone involved was to move the game to Friday night. The Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Spring Game was the first opportunity for our fans to see this team this spring and we didn’t want that impacted by the threat of heavy rains and lightning forecasted for the entire day.”
