Louisville, Kentucky Get Into Pregame Scuffle That Involves Coaches (Video)

When people are reminded of the Louisville and Kentucky rivalry, they most likely think of basketball rather than football.

But before Saturday’s game between the two schools, the rivalry spilled onto the football field as players and coaches from both sides started pushing and shoving at midfield.

It’s not clear what started the scuffle, but even Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino got involved when he grabbed a Kentucky assistant’s sweater. [tweet https://twitter.com/MichaelMReaves/status/538731832851038208 align=’center’]

Of course, this isn’t the first time Louisville’s football team has been part of an altercation with another team. The Cardinals exchanged pleasantries with Virginia earlier this season during a halftime brawl.
