At least by my math - NCAA math could be something completely different

Notre Dame and Louisville have 9 Men's sports in common:
Baseball (11.7), Basketball (13), Cross Country & Track (12.6), Football (85), Golf (4.5), Soccer (9.9), Swimming & Diving (9.9) for a scholarship limit number of 151.1

Notre Dame also has Men's sports - Fencing (4.5), Hockey (18), & Lacrosse (12.6) for an Additional 35.1. So a Men's total of 186.2

Notre Dame and Louisville have 11 Women's sports in common:
Basketball (15), Cross Country & Track (18), Golf (6), Lacrosse (12), Rowing (20), Soccer (14), Softball (12), Swimming & Diving (14), Tennis (8), Volleyball (12) for a scholarship limit number of 131

Louisville Women have Field Hockey which adds 12 more for a total of 143
Notre Dame Women have Fencing which adds 5 for a total of 136

Bottomline, Notre Dame has 35.1 more Mens scholarships than Louisville and & 7 fewer Women's scholarships - at least according the NCAA scholarship limits

Women's sports don't quite equal the Men's numbers for either team

"According to the NCAA, there are three basic parts of Title IX as it applies to athletics: participation, scholarships and other benefits. Institutions must have participation opportunities that are proportionate to their respective rates of full-time undergraduate students or show a history and continued practice of program expansion for the underrepresented sex."
