Cajuns Defeat Kent State

Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns earned their first victory of the Mark Hudspeth era Saturday night, defeating the Golden Flashes of Kent State on a rainy night in Ohio. The final score of 20-12 was hard fought by UL, as Derrick Dean, Tyrell Gaddies, Bill Bentley, Chris Tucker, Lionel Stokes, and the rest of the Ragin’ Cajun defense played an incredible ballgame.

 Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns took a 10-point lead into the third quarter and finished strong in the fourth quarter en route to a 20-12 victory at Kent State. The victory marks the Cajuns first non-conference road win since a 31-28 upset at Houston on Oct. 7, 2006. It also marks the first win for new head coach Mark Hudspeth.

UL (1-1) returns home next week to host the first game of the Hudspeth era inside Cajun Field on Saturday, Sept. 17 vs. Nicholls State.

The Cajuns came out flat in the third quarter after an extended lightning delay. It allowed the Golden Flashes to enter the fourth frame down by only five points.

UL had minus-9 yards of offense in the last 9:13 of the third quarter following the delay. The Cajuns committed three personal fouls over the same span.

The fourth quarter, however, belonged to the Cajuns and particularly the defense. UL moved the ball well offensively, recovered a key fumble and stopped KSU on fourth down twice inside the final six minutes.
