Cajuns Complete Crazy Comeback, Get 8th Win
Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns trailed the ULM Warhawks by 11 points with only 3:08 left in the 4th quarter. A little over 2 minutes later, they led the game by 1. A touchdown by Darryl Surgent, coupled with a Ladarius Green recovery of an onside kick, followed by an Alonzo Harris score, and ending with a defensive stand, the Cajuns completed a crazy comeback on Senior day to defeat the Warhawks 36-35.
It was an improbable win that only adds to the mystique of what has been an incredibly special football season in Coach Mark Hudsepth’s first year. The win improves the Cajuns record to 8-2 overall, 6-1 in the Sun Belt Conference, and a perfect 5-0 at home this season. It marks the first time in 24 years UL has finished with a perfect record at home.
Tight End Ladarius Green was incredible on senior day, finishing with 13 catches, 137 yards, 2 touchdowns, and an onside kick recovery. Quarterback Blaine Gautier threw 4 touchdowns and 355 yards.
Next week the Cajuns travel to Jonesboro Arkansas to take on the Arkansas State Red Wolves in a battle for the Sun Belt Conference championship. Kickoff is set for 2:00, with pregame beginning at 1:30. You can here all the action right here on espn1420.com.
