The Louisville Cardinals are breaking out a set of new, matte white football helmets for the Cards' Thursday night showdown against Rutgers.

Louisville leading Rutgers at the Half 17-7

The Louisville Cardinals (5-0, 1-0) are leading the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (4-1, 1-0) at the half 17-7 in their home stadium. Many felt that this could be Louisville’s most challenging game of the season in the American Athletic Conference. There are NFL scouts from almost every team in attendance taking a look at Teddy Bridgewater, who at the moment is 10 of 14 for 154 yards...

Rick Pitino Likely Won’t Accept Any More Early Commitments

ESPN As we mentioned earlier this week, ESPN college basketball writer Jeff Goodman was on campus Monday evening to watch Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals practice. During Goodman’s stop in Louisville, he spoke with Rick Pitino about the impact of social media in recruiting. As you know, Coach Pitino has lost two verbal commitments in recent months and was forced to basically...

Cards' Ware gets clean bill of health

Kevin Ware is officially ready to get back in the game. Louisville head coach Rick Pitino says that the junior guard, who suffered a horrific broken leg during the Cardinals' Elite Eight win over Duke on March 31, has been medically cleared to practice just six months removed from the injury. "He has a clean bill of health," Pitino said, via the Courier-Journal. ...

Kevin Ware expected to play in the opener

Kevin Ware to suit up for the Louisville’s first game Since suffering from an open fracture to his right leg in March, Kevin Ware has become a heart warming story around the sports world. We all remember the gruesome scene with Ware on the sideline with seemingly no hope left. All of the brave kid could do was yell to his teammates ”Just win the game. I’m OK. Just win the...

Louisville’s Three Running Back System Will Be Put To The Test Tonight

One thing that determines whether or not your football program is considered elite is the amount of depth you have at key positions.  For Louisville football, that depth is certainly there at the running back position. The depth at running back was something to be counted on even before the addition of Auburn transfer Michael Dyer.  Dominique Brown and Senorise Perry both have...

Pitino plans to still target centers

Photo: Kelly Kline/Under Armour It’s been pretty well noted that the front-court was a major focus for Rick Pitino and his staff in the 2014 class. Louisville currently has commitments from forward Jaylen Johnson, center Chinanu Onuaku and is in five star forward Trey Lyles’ final two. Although the staff appears to have addressed the needs in 2014, they’re still targeting big...

Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Louisville Cardinals: Odds, Point Spread, Over/Under and tv info

Andy Lyons/Getty Images North Americasv The Rutgers Scarlet Knights (4-1) will have their work cut out for them on Thursday night as they play against the No. 8 ranked Lousivlle Cardinals. (5-0) Since an opening week loss, Rutgers has strung together four consecutive wins including a thrilling 55-52 win over SMU last week. Meanwhile little has stood in the way of Louisville thus...

Is DeVante Parker Ready To Return To The Field?

Louisville’s top red-zone target, DeVante Parker, has been listed as day-to-day, since going down with a shoulder injury in the first quarter against Temple on Saturday. Charlie Strong told the media that the training staff would continue to give Parker the necessary treatment throughout the week and that he’d be a game time decision on Thursday. As of Monday, I think most folks...

Charlie Strong & His Team Not At All Worried About The Polls

ESPN Despite being undefeated and clearly dominating the first five games on their schedule, the Louisville football program has recently dropped in both major polls. Some would speculate that the Cards haven’t been as dominant as they needed to be against a weak schedule, but when you’ve outscored your opponents 127-3 in the first half, that is clearly dominant. Doing everything...

Rapid Reaction: Louisville 24 – Rutgers 10

Photo: Andy Lyons – Getty Images Let’s face it. For the first time in the 2013 season, Charlie Strong and the Louisville Cardinals went up against a good football team. Not a great team and not a team that is playing for a national championship, but a good team that has talented players to compete. With all that said, Louisville obviously didn’t play their best football tonight...

GAME SIX: Louisville vs Rutgers

The 8th-ranked Louisville Cardinals welcome Rutgers for a nationally televised Thursday night contest at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. U of L is looking to become bowl eligible with a victory tonight.

Winning may have to do for Louisville football

Charlie Strong welcomes his defensive unit back to the sidelines after still another stop. The development of the University of Louisville football program is still a work in progress, probably ahead of schedule, and dreams of playing in a national championship game will go unfulfilled this season. That became more obvious than ever in a 24-10 over Rutgers, the Cardinals needing...

Are Mauldin & Smith The Best Defensive End Duo In The Country? Coach Strong Says Yes

Fox Sports I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that last night’s defensive performance from Louisville may be the best we’ve seen in the Charlie Strong era. Two players that played particularly well are starting defensive ends Lorenzo Mauldin and Marcus Smith. Last night wasn’t the only impressive performance that we’ve seen from the two throughout the season. While the...

Louisville Football: What If There Was An 8 Team Playoff In 2013

With this being the final season of the BCS, next year we’ll see the new college football format, which includes a four team playoff. Starting in 2014, a rotation of six bowl sites will host semifinal games under the new format. The timing of this change is certainly unfortunate for Charlie Strong and the Louisville program. With a high caliber offense, a shut down defense and...

'Mr. Reliable' - Copeland - does it for Cards

University of Louisville senior wide receiver Damian Copeland stepped up when he was needed on Thursday night against Rutgers. Copeland led the Cardinals with eight catches for 115 yards in the 24-10 win over Rutgers.
