CFB23: Week 2

The Louisville Cardinals on Thursday improved to 2-0 on the college-football season by beating the visiting Murray State Racers, 56-0, in a game at L&N Stadium. 

I had no idea that Louisville’s home field is now called "L&N Stadium." That's short for "L&N Federal Credit Union Stadium," and it's the same place off I-65 that previously had been called "Cardinal Stadium" and "Papa John's Cardinal Stadium." "The stadium site of the former South Louisville Rail Yard is also the original site of the credit union, founded in 1954 to serve L&N Railroad workers ...," says Wikipedia.

Murray State is now 1-1.

So now we turn to Saturday's action, highlighted by the undefeated Western Kentucky Hilltoppers' hosting of the Houston Christian Huskies at 6 p.m. Central in Bowling Green's Houchens Industries–L. T. Smith Stadium. Here are some of tomorrow's other CFB23 games that interest me:
