This year’s young college basketball season has lived up to the preseason hype thus far. Three top ranked teams have already fallen, opening the door for the Louisville Cardinals to enter the spotlight. We’ll see if they deserve that ranking on Tuesday night when they battle the hottest team in the country – No. 4 Michigan.
The Cardinals are set to host the Wolverines on Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN. With just a few hours before tip-off, Louisville has released its uniform for tonight’s massive game.
Whether you’re a Louisville fan or not, these are fresh. Check out the uniform below.

What do you think, Louisville fans? Nothing beats the classic home whites with the red letters and numbers.
As for the actual match-up tonight, the Cardinals are facing the hottest team in the country. The fourth ranked Wolverines weren’t getting much love in the polls to start the season. But last week’s wins over two top 10 teams – Gonzaga and North Carolina – have vaulted UM all the way up to No. 4 in the latest AP Top 25 ranking.
Louisville is 7-0, but hasn’t been battle tested like the Wolverines have this season. But with the Cardinals’ fans and home court advantage, it’ll be tough for Michigan to continue its hot streak of play.
Louisville-Michigan tips off tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
