The Cardinals have drawn a tough assignment of playing at Michigan State in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge next season, a rematch of the NCAA Elite Eight game from March.

The game will be played on Dec. 2.

Michigan State beat Louisville 76-70 in the NCAA game on March 29 in Syracuse, N.Y., and moved on to play in the Final Four.

Louisville is 5-4 all-time in the series with the Spartans.

The road game adds to an already tough U of L slate, which includes games at Kentucky, at Pittsburgh, at Duke, at North Carolina and at Virginia.

It could be the toughest road schedule in school history with what will be a young team that includes six newcomers.
