Louisville chrome red helmets may make their debut at this weekend’s huge game vs. Florida State.
Louisville, Kentucky will be the center of the college football world on Saturday. ESPN’s College GameDay is making its first trip to The Derby City for the Cardinals’ huge ACC game vs. Florida State. Now, it appears that the team may be breaking out some awesome new helmets for the event.
Louisville’s verified football equipment Twitter account posted a tweet that only contains an eyes emoji, but users quickly realized that the account had a new profile picture of the slick new lid.

Yeah, that is a very cool new chrome red helmet.
The Cardinals have been one of the stories of the early college football season. Quarterback Lamar Jackson is an early Heisman favorite, with 13 total touchdowns through the team’s first two games. He has an astounding 697 passing and 318 rushing yards during the start. The Seminoles’ uber-talented defense will be a more stout test than Charlotte or Syracuse, however.
Louisville and FSU kick off at noon at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
