The Louisville Cardinals and the North Carolina Tar Heels will play a home-and-home football series in 2011 and 2012, the schools have announced.
Louisville will travel to face North Carolina at Kenan Memorial Stadium in Chapel Hill on September 3, 2011. The Cardinals will host the Tar Heels at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium in 2012 on a date to be determined.
The two schools have played five times overall with Louisville leading the series 3-2. In their last meeting in 2005, the Cardinals beat the Tar Heels 69-14 at home.
Louisville was previously scheduled to open the 2011 season at Georgia and host the Bulldogs in 2012, but the games were canceled after the Bulldogs accpeted an offer to play Boise State in the 2011 Chick-fil-A College Kickoff.
