It's April Fools in October.
A tweet from the University of Cincinnati's official football account Tuesday morning showed a rendering of Nippert Stadium that featured black turf and an outline of the Cincinnati skyline.
We hear you, #Bearcats!There were so many great ideas for this week’s field paint, we decided to just combine them all together - and it is something special.Huge thank you to everyone for the input! Can’t wait to see this place rocking for #NippAtNight. pic.twitter.com/RSvHc3WQD7— Cincinnati Football (@GoBearcatsFB) October 1, 2019
UC Athletics confirmed that the transformation will not take place, as it was "social media fun".
The tweet came the morning after the Twitter account posted "Something big coming soon..."
