It's not an absolute number of scholarships by sex

Rather, the percentage of athletic scholarships by sex has to be proportional to overall enrollment by sex.

Notre Dame has more male students than female students, and therefore can provide more athletic scholarships to male student-athletes than to female student-athletes, so long as the proportion approximates the proportion of overall male/female student enrollment.

I don't know what Louisville's exact enrollment numbers are, but I would make an educated guess that they have a higher proportion of female students than ND has. In that case, they are required to award more athletic scholarships to female student-athletes, proportionately speaking, than ND is.
