UK showdown with Louisville now last game of season

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville's annual September showdown with Kentucky will now be a season-ending rivalry game starting next year.

The school on Wednesday announced an agreement between Kentucky that shifts the intrastate matchup to the regular season's final weekend. Louisville will host the 2014 game on Nov. 29.

Scheduling adjustments caused by expansion of the Southeastern and Atlantic Coast conferences to 14 teams - the latter of which includes Louisville, which joins next season - resulted in the move that will now make the Cardinals-Wildcats contest one of four in-state rivalry games between the leagues.

Kentucky leads the series 14-11 but is 8-11 against Louisville since it resumed in 1994 after a 70-year break. The Wildcats will host the ninth-ranked Cardinals in the Governor's Cup game on Sept. 14 at Commonwealth Stadium.
