Louisville is making moves in its future football schedules. Earlier this week, the Cardinals announced a game with Marshall, previously scheduled for the 2014 season, will now be played in 2016.
Friday, the University announced a new deal with Houston that will be played in the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
Per the UofL release: "The Cougars will travel to Papa John's Cardinal Stadium on Sept. 12, 2015, and the Cardinals will make the return trip to Houston on Nov. 19, 2016. The Cougars are in the process of building a new 40,000-seat stadium that is scheduled to be completed in 2014."
Louisville and Houston enter this season's Nov. 16 matchup with the series tied at seven wins a piece. The Cougars, currently 5-0, share the lead with the Cardinals in the American Athletic Conference.
Louisville will move to the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2014 with the Cardinals taking over Maryland's spot in the league after the Terrapins switch to the Big Ten Conference.
With the move of Marshall to 2016 and the addition of Houston to the 2015 and 2016 schedules, Louisville's future football schedules are taking shape. The ACC released a rotating schedule through 2024 earlier this year.
