Louisville replaces UK with WKU; Full ACC schedule released

The Governor’s Cup won’t take place this fall, but two in-state football teams will face off. This morning, the ACC released its full 2020 schedule, and Louisville will start its season against Western Kentucky on September 12 in Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

Last week, the ACC announced it was moving to a 10+1 schedule with one non-conference game, which left the door open for the annual Louisville-Kentucky game…until the SEC announced it will only play conference games in 2020. We’re still waiting on the SEC to release its schedule, which will tell us who Kentucky’s additional league opponents will be, but if you’d like to peek over the fence and see what the ACC is doing, here’s their complete slate:

Of course Louisville is playing three Friday night games.

    This makes me sad and mad. Why couldn’t UK & UofL and the SEC come to an agreement to play?

    Its crap. Sabotages the final week of the regular season where 4 sec east teams play 4 in state ACC rivals

    I hate this. With the line UK has, Cats my would have averaged 9 yards a carry again, against those guys.

    The whole reason SEC decided on zero non-con games is because if SEC decided on a 10+1, similar to ACC, the other 3 non-con opponents on each teams schedule can sue for the money they were supposed to be paid, and its a 98%/99% chance they would win, costing the conference millions of dollars. I agree that its B.S. and if the ACC could do it, we should have been able to do it as well. But of course not, it sucks, something terribly because its pretty much a foregone conclusion that we were gonna smash the DIRTYBIRDS for a 3rd year in a row!!
