Louisville Unveils Close-Up Of Helmets For Friday's Blackout Game

Tomorrow night's game against Duke will serve as a "blackout" game for Louisville football.

This morning, Louisville unveiled an up close and personal look at their new black helmets for tomorrow night. In case you were wondering, they look awesome.

The black shell with the bright red Old English "L" looks sick. The Cards have rolled out a series of alternate uniforms and helmets in recent years, but these are one of the best.

The 4-1 Cardinals host the 3-3 Blue Devils at 7 p.m. ET tomorrow night on ESPN. Louisville needs to win this game, and every subsequent contest, in order to have an outside shot at the College Football Playoff.

On Tuesday, ESPN expert Mark Schlabach included UL among the eight teams he feels still have a shot at the CFB Playoff, despite already having one loss.
