Louisville unveils the Muhammad Ali helmet sticker it will wear vs. Florida State
Louisville will play one of its biggest games in school history on Saturday, and it’s doing it in style.
On Thursday, we told you about the spectacular new alternate jerseys the Cardinals will wear against Florida State. And on Friday, we learned that the school has made one special addition.
The Cardinals will wear commemorative helmet stickers to honor the late Muhammad Ali. The decals were revealed by the Louisville Equipment Twitter account on Friday.

This move is no surprise, considering that the late Ali is one of Louisville’s most famous sons. He was born in the city and lived there, on his way to winning a gold medal at the 1960 Olympics as Cassius Clay. He later converted to Islam, taking the name Muhammad Ali and winning the heavyweight championship of the world. After his passing, he was buried there this summer.
This is definitely a cool way for the Cardinals to honor "The Greatest."
We’ll see if they can honor him with a win when they host the Seminoles at noon ET on Saturday.
