There's a new No. 18 in town

The updated U of L football roster reveals that Titus Teague is no longer the only Cardinal bearing the unthinkable burden of carrying the #18 jersey tradition on his back.

Redshirt freshman kicker Matthew Nakatani will now be proudly supported by yours truly at home games this fall. Nakatani, the son of jockey Corey Nakatani, was a standout at Shelby County before walking on at U of L last summer.
