This in-state rivalry game has even more on the line this time around as the Ragin’ Cajuns are a win away from becoming bowl eligible and the Warhawks could push to 5-7 with an outside shot at bowl eligibility depending on their academics.
In addition to that, this game will play a factor in the recruiting battle as there are expected to be several recruits on site. While they aren’t big time FBS schools playing, the two schools are frequently fighting over the same players.
UL Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns
Inconsistent offense has prevented this season from becoming an even better one for the Ragin’ Cajuns.
A win over conference leader Arkansas State last week has their confidence up and they will be hoping to return to a bowl game after missing last season with a 4-8 record.
In UL Lafayette’s 6 losses have been two multi-overtime games as well as losses to FBS powerhouses Boise State and Georgia.
They have been highly competitive in conference play with 4 wins to this point along with losses to bowl bound Appalachian State and Idaho.
So, they certainly don’t have a lot to beat themselves up over at 5-6. But, a win is a must this week to get back to a bowl game and prove they are even better than their record showed.
The Ragin’ Cajuns have owned this rivalry of late – winning 7 of the last 8 matchups.
They will look to LSU transfer quarterback Anthony Jennings for leadership and big game experience to bring them back to a bowl game.
In 2014, Jennings led LSU to a bowl game with a 8-4 regular season record as their quarterback that year.
UL Monroe Warhawks
The Warhawks defense has struggled mightily this season – allowing 40 points per game.
They are allowing 506 yards of total offense per game and haven’t done much to stop the pass or the run.
Their offense has been good at times but hasn’t been able to do enough to compensate for the defense.
Running back Thomas Koufie led the way a few weeks ago with 5 rushing touchdowns in their win over Georgia State.
They will need that type of production from him and Ben Luckett on the ground to slow the tempo and protect the porous defense.
The quarterback play has been inconsistent with Garrett Smith, Caleb Evans, and Will Collins combining to complete 55 percent of their passes on the season with a 15 to 14 touchdown to interception ratio.
So, it is difficult to understand how the Warhawks have even managed a 4-7 record but a win over FCS Southern as well as 2-9 Texas State make that more understandable.
The rivalry and UL Monroe being at home is what makes this spread as close as it is but past results indicate the UL Lafayette has been dominating the one-sided rivalry.
