Louisville may be leaving the AAC for the ACC after the 2013 season, but the Cardinals aren’t completely ditching their soon-to-be-former league mates.

Along with Houston, the UofL announced Friday morning a future home-and-home series between the two football programs.  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.

“We’ve been committed to scheduling quality opponents that reward our fans and provide great competition for our team. When you look at the success sustained by Louisville, we feel like we’ve covered those two factors,” said athletic director Mack Rhoades in a statement. “We’ve had great competition with Louisville in the past as evident by the series record, and we look forward to keeping the spirited rivalry alive.”

The schools have met 14 times previously, with the series tied at seven apiece.  The Cougars and Cardinals will square off Nov. 16 in Louisville in their first, and only, AAC matchup.

    Louisville won’t have problems like this once they join the ACC. But this year they might be the only team to drop further in the rankings as the season goes long and they stay undefeated.

    This would be news in 1990. Paging David Klingler and Browning Nagle!
