LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The yearly Friday night football game for the Louisville Cardinals is Friday October 26 at 8 p.m. It is set to be a chilly, rainy Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium.

Some trace the beginnings of the Cards successful season to the day coach Howard Schnellenberger was hired. In this edition of Friday Flashback WHAS11 found the original coverage from that day on December 1, 1984. Click on the video player above to view.

Schnellenberger left UofL in 1994. In his time he beat Alabama and won the Liberty Bowl.

He is now retired from Florida Atlantic and in a recent interview with the Courier-Journal he said the best thing about retirement is quote,  "I don't have 150 18 to 22-year-olds  to worry about...or their girlfriends."
