The birds are back and they're looking to take down the Michigan Wolverines. And although it appears Cardinal fans may be outnumbered, what they lack in numbers they make up for in creativity.
"I am what a Cardinals fan looks like. I have all red on, got my horns on. But if you catch me tonight, I'll look like Elvis, but I'll be a Cards Elvis, black sequence suit, red shirt," said Suzanne Koehne, a Louisville fan.
"In Russ we trust. Everyday we're Russeling, you know it," said Michael McLean, a Louisville fan.
Russ Smith is Louisville's star guard. Many fans said they are counting on him to bring home the win.
"I just hope that Russ starts off with fire in his eyes. It was kind of slow the other night getting started, but I'm confident he is going to show up," said McLean.
Many experts are predicting a close game, but if you ask Louisville fans, there's no question who will be flying high when the game is over.
"I think we can wear them down and I think regardless of what happens, the first 30 minutes of the game I think we win the last 10 minutes and I think we win the game," said Lane.
