New Orleans is just like home to Ragin’ Cajuns.
Mark Hudspeth’s team will again represent the Sun Belt Conference in the 14th R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The Dec. 20 game will be played against the University of Nevada Wolf Pack, 7-5 in the Mountain West.
This is the fourth New Orleans Bowl appearance in a row for the Cajuns, and a tribute to their perseverance in a challenging season — the team came up trumps in Sun Belt play and earned this spot.
It’s a great game for the New Orleans region and for the state. We congratulate the Ragin’ Cajuns and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette on this honor.
