The 2016 New Orleans Bowl will feature the UL Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns and the Southern Miss Golden Eagles.
Both teams had uneven years throughout the season, but they battled their way to become bowl eligible and make it to the 2016 New Orleans Bowl.
UL Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns
The 2016 year didn’t start off the way the Ragin’ Cajuns might have hoped for.
ULL started off the year 2-4 after six games, but rebounded to go 4-2 in the final six games – including winning the final two games and losing a close, competitive game against the Georgia Bulldogs.
UL Lafayette struggled to score the ball this season as they only scored over 30 points in five games.
However, the good news for them is the fact that Southern Miss struggled defensively as they allowed 30 points per game.
UL Lafayette might find a little more success on the offensive end in what is basically a home game for them.
Southern Miss Golden Eagles
It was an uneven year for the Southern Miss Golden Eagles and the main reason for that is quarterback Nick Mullens.
The Southern Miss Golden Eagles go as Mullens goes. In his career, Mullens is 19-19 as the starting quarterback, however, in games in which he didn’t start Southern Miss was 0-11.
Southern Miss struggled down the stretch going 2-3 in their last five games.
However, in two of those losses Mullens didn’t start, but he got healthy and started in their final game in which Southern Miss defeated Louisiana Tech 39-24.

This should be a good, competitive game and a nice way to end a Saturday night packed full of bowl games. I think with Mullens healthy I like Southern Miss in this one.
Mullens is a game changer for this Golden Eagles team.

There is no line, currently, but I do like Southern Miss in this one. I do expect some points to be put up in this one, so, perhaps, the over might be in play, as well.
