Louisville begins ACC era vs. Miami

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Bobby Petrino will make his 2014 Louisville coaching debut in a Labor Day matchup against Miami that also kicks off the Cardinals' participation in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The nationally-televised prime-time matchup is among several marquee games for the Cardinals, who will also host defending national champion Florida State on Oct. 30 and travel to Notre Dame on Nov. 22.

Louisville's ACC road schedule includes an Oct. 3 game against former Big East foe Syracuse, followed eight days later by a matchup at Clemson. The Cardinals also visit Boston College on Nov. 8.

Petrino will begin his second stint with Louisville against the Hurricanes in a rematch of last season's Russell Athletic Bowl won by the Cardinals 36-9. The season concludes with a Nov. 29 home game against rival Kentucky.

''It's certainly what we wanted, to be able to play a schedule like that, to get in a conference like the ACC,'' Petrino said Wednesday in a conference call. ''Now we just start preparing for it.''

Louisville's opener against Miami will mark the first time the Cardinals begin the season with a conference game since 1973. Besides FSU, the ACC home schedule includes Wake Forest (Sept. 27) and North Carolina State (Oct. 18).

A Sept. 6 home game against Murray State and a Sept. 20 contest at FIU highlight the Cardinals' nonconference schedule.
