The Louisiana Ragin ‘Cajuns football team will celebrate their homecoming with a Sun Belt Conference game against the State of Texas on Saturday, October 30.
The match is set to kick off at 11:00 a.m. CT at Cajun Field in Lafayette, much to coach Billy Napier and university officials who would have preferred a later start to leave enough time for a pre-game return parade and tailgating.
“Initially when the kick-off time was given… there were a lot of questions about it, but our administration is not making those decisions,” Napier said on Monday. “But I think we can make it a positive.… We just have to get out of bed and come here, and then get ready for the rest of the day.”
UL enters the game 6-1 overall and 4-0 in the Sun Belt. The Ragin ‘Cajuns are coming off a 28-27 victory over Arkansas State on October 21.
Texas State is 2-5 this season and 1-2 against opponents Sun Belt. The Bobcats have lost back-to-back games, most recently 28-16 to Georgia State.
