Louisiana Ragin' Cajun fans in New Orleans for the R&L Carrier's New Orleans Bowl can catch a Cajun basketball road game earlier in the day.

Originally scheduled to play UNO at Lakefront Arena at 6:00pm on Saturday, December 17th, the Cajun basketball team will now tip-off at UNO at 2:00pm.

The R&L Carrier's New Orleans Bowl will kickoff at 8:00pm that night when Lousiana battles Southern Miss.

"We are very thankful for the cooperation between (UNO Director of Athletics) Derek Morel, the University of New Orleans, along with Cox Sports Television for making this change possible," Interim Director of Athletics Dr. Jessica Leger said in a University press release. "With the Ragin' Cajuns football team playing on Saturday night in the R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, this will give our fans the ability to support both of our teams during their visit to the Crescent City."

The basketball game will be televised on CST and on the radio airwaves on ESPN1420 and HOT 107.9 FM.
