The Ragin’ Cajuns will start their 2020 season on the road against the Iowa State Cyclones at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa.
Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns
Louisiana-Lafayette is coming off the best finish in program history in 2019 and even managed to stay ranked for two weeks of the season. The Cajuns racked up 11 wins en route to a bowl win over Miami OH. The goal for them in 2020 is to win the Sun Belt championship game as they lost at the hands of Appalachian State.
Levi Lewis will return for his senior at Louisiana-Lafayette after a solid junior year. Lewis threw for 3,050 yards to go with 26 touchdowns in 2019. The Ragin’s will rely on senior running back Elijah Mitchell in the backfield this season as he led the team with 1217 yards from scrimmage in 2019. He was 15th in the nation with 17 touchdowns last year and will look to build on that this year.
On defense, the Cajuns are led by senior linebacker Joe Dillion. Dillion led the team in tackles in 2019 with 43 tackles and 26 them being solo. He also led the team with seven interceptions at the linebacker position which is very impressive in this day and age.
Iowa State Cyclones
Some people in the media have the Cyclones have the dark horse candidate to steal the Big-12 in this crazy season. They have a bunch of players returning on offense and most importantly they have senior QB Brock Purdy who is a top-10 project QB in the 2021 draft.
Purdy is considered a dual-threat QB as he can get it done on the air and on the ground. Brock threw for 3,982 yards to go with his 27 passing touchdowns in addition to 249 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns. His eight rushing touchdowns were second on the team just one behind leading rusher Breece Hall, who will return for his sophomore season.
Defensively, the Cyclones struggled in 2019 giving up an average of 25.9 points per game. It did get better though as the season went on as senior DB Greg Eisworth emerged as a real start on the defensive side of the ball. Eisworth led the team with 65 tackles and even had one interception to his credit in 2019.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick:
Louisana-Lafayette is a really good team and I think they have the potential to even pull the upset in this game. Senior QB Levi Lewis is an elite ball carrier and may even have the best QB vision in the country. Pair that with one college football’s best running backs I don’t see why they can’t pull the upset here as Iowa State is not great defensively. Give me the Ragin’ Cajuns to keep it close as I believe in them in this one.
