Can La. Lafayette Bring Sun Belt to National Prominence?

Posted on July 9th 2014

The Ragin’ Cajuns are loaded and ready to explode onto the National scene. Billingsley’s 2014 Preseason projections find Louisiana Lafayette finishing the season 10-2 with a national ranking closing in on the Top 25 at #27. Losses are projected to be at the hands of Ole Miss on September 13 and Boise State on September 20. Both games are on the road. An upset win over either opponent, coupled with a projected undefeated run in the Sun Belt conference, would assure The Cajuns of that coveted Top 25 ranking, something never achieved by a Sun Belt team. Going undefeated in the conference however, will not be an easy feat. Arkansas State is only a step behind and Louisiana Monroe and Troy are both capable of taking the crown as well.  Mark your calendars, the conference title could be decided when Arkansas State visits Louisiana Lafayette on a special Tuesday night edition of college football on October 21.
