Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - U of L's meeting with No. 2 Florida State was the talk of the town Thursday night.

Two and a half hours before game time, the Cardinals made their way to Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, high fiving fans along the way. 

"It feels much more electric," Louisville fan Jon Cecil said. "This is a big game."

So big, that some fans brought their own D.J. and big screen TV to the tailgate party.

"Tonight is about celebration, Aaron Flaker said.

University President James Ramsey said this game was circled by many on their calendars when the schedules came out. 

"There's a lot of energy," Ramsey said. "(It's) great for university."

In their last match up with Florida State 12 years ago, U of L won in overtime. 

Many thought the Cardinals can come out on top again, including a former player.

"I think we can compete," said Ibn Green, who played for Louisville from 1995-1999. "Expect a great time."
