LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Following a trip to Atlanta, Ga. to open up the 2021 season, the Louisville football program is making the return to Cardinal Stadium with their home-opener against Eastern Kentucky.

The Cardinals came stumbling out of the gates to start the new season, falling 43-24 to Ole Miss at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Louisville could never establish any sort of rhythm against the Rebels, resulting in them trailing 26-0 entering halftime, and getting out-gained by over 200 yards of total offense at the end of the game.

As for the Colonels, they found a little more success in their season opener. Taking part in their first game as a member of the ASUN (formerly Atlantic Sun) Conference, they held off a fourth quarter rally from Western Carolina, and claimed a 31-28 road victory.

This will be the 29th meeting all-time between Louisville and Eastern Kentucky, with the Cardinals owing a 19-8-1 all-time series advantage dating back to 1927. Louisville currently hold a 19-game winning streak over FCS opponents, with the last loss coming in 1985 vs. EKU.
