Louisville and adidas unveiled new uniforms for the Cardinals on Thursday, showcasing an alternate take on the team’s logos.

Louisville will wear the Uncaged Cardinal Primeknit uniforms for the Sept. 5 season opener against Auburn in Atlanta. The white helmets feature a different Cardinals logo with a larger, more three-dimensional, “all-new, photo-real, high-def Uncaged Cardinal” on the left side of the helmet. On the right side is a chrome and red English “L.” A similar “L” is found on the left leg, matching the helmet.

On the jerseys, the shoulders feature chrome and red wings. The lettering and numbering are chrome and outlined in bold red.
