The Cardinals are scheduled for 18 games across the ESPN family of networks.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville baseball program will be featured prominently on national television throughout the 2020 season, as ESPN and its family of networks announced their programming schedules on Tuesday.
The Cardinals have 18 games scheduled for national television, headlined by games against Clemson (April 12) and at Vanderbilt (May 5) set to air on ESPN2. UofL will also play 15 games on the ACC Network and its away game at Kentucky will be featured on the SEC Network.
The ACC Network will also televise the semifinals of the ACC Baseball Championship on May 23 from BB&T Ballpark in Charlotte, N.C., with ESPN2 carrying the championship game the following day.
Fifty-five of Louisville’s 56 regular season contests are scheduled to be televised, with all of its non-nationally televised home games set for air on ACC Network Extra. The Cardinals’ opening weekend at Ole Miss will be shown on SEC Network+. The 55 regular season games scheduled for television coverage are the most in program history.
Louisville enters the 2020 season as the top-ranked team in the country in three of the six major polls, ranking second in the other three. The Cardinals are coming off a 51-18 record during the 2019 campaign that saw them win the ACC Atlantic Division for the fourth time in five years and reach the bracket final at the College World Series, the deepest postseason run in program history.
Head coach Dan McDonnell is set to begin his 14th season at the helm of the Louisville program and returns 24 players from last year’s team that finished the year ranked third nationally.
Louisville opens the 2020 season Feb. 14 with a three-game series on the road at No. 18 Ole Miss in Oxford, Miss. The Cardinals’ home opener is set for Feb. 19 against Wright State at Jim Patterson Stadium.
