Nippert Stadium turf

A rendering of Nippert Stadium

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.

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..."

The 3-1 Bearcats face No. 18 Central Florida at Nippert Friday evening at 8 p.m.
