Notre Dame will travel to league foe Louisville to close the regular season and each of the final two games of the series will be featured on CBS College Sports. The first contest will air at 7:00 p.m. (ET) on Friday, May 20 (originally scheduled for 6:00 p.m. [ET]), while the next meeting with the Cardinals will be broadcast at 1:00 p.m. (ET) on Saturday, May 21.
