The Ohio Bobcats’ season-opener against the 2013 Sugar Bowl Champion Louisville Cardinals has been moved to Sunday, Sept. 1 at 3:30 p.m. EST. The game will air on ESPN.

This is the second consecutive season in which Ohio has been televised on ESPN for its season-opener. The Bobcats took down the Penn State Nittany Lions 24-14 to start last season in State College, Penn.

Ohio has become accustomed to having its schedule shuffled by ESPN. Last season the Bobcats played three games in 12 days to fit ESPN’s television schedule.

The Louisville game was originally set for Aug. 31.
