LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The University of Louisville has designated Saturday's nationally televised game against Clemson as a "blackout" in Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

Fans are encouraged to wear black and the team will wear black uniforms provided by adidas.

U of L's first blackout was on Nov. 2, 2006, when they beat No. 3 West Virginia in a Thursday night ESPN game.

The kickoff for Saturday's game was moved to 8:12 p.m., from 3:30, and the game will be televised by ABC.

The Cards held a blackout last season for their 24-14 win over Duke.

The game also will get a visit from ESPN's College GameDay, which will broadcast live from 9 a.m. to noon in front of the Grawemeyer Hall Administration Building. Details for fans wishing to attend that broadcast will be released soon.
