The Louisville Cardinals are back in action Tuesday night as they take on the South Florida Bulls at home. The No. 11 ranked Louisville will have  just one day of rest after dominating Rutgers at home Sunday night, 102-54. The Bulls have lost their last three games straight, losing to UCF Saturday on the road, 75-74.

The game starts at 7pm EST. on the CBS Sports Network. WKRD (790AM) will be calling the game in Louisville, KY., USF’s IMG Network will be calling the game in Tampa.

Louisville beat USF in Tamp earlier this season, 86-47. The Cards are 28-4 against the Bulls all-time.

The Louisville Cardinals will all be unshaven after agreeing last week not to shave until they lose. That includes Rick Pitino and the rest of the coaching staff. Please excuse walk-on David Levitch, he only needs to shave once a month and does not have to much to show for his efforts.

“With this league, and college basketball in general, you just have no idea how an opponent will play,” Pitino said via the Courier-Journal. “What you have to do is just stay focused, try and take away their strengths and just make sure you’re clicking on all cylinders.”
