Cajuns On The Road To Take On Oklahoma St.
Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun football team returns to the gridiron on Saturday, when coach Mark Hudspeth’s squad travels to Stillwater, Oklahoma, to take on the Oklahoma St. Cowboys, in non-conference action.
Louisiana defeated Troy last week, 37-24, moving them to 2-0 on the year. It’s the first time UL is 2-0 since 2009, and just the second time since 1990.
A win over Oklahoma State this week would allow UL to start the season with three straight victories for the first time since 1988, when the Cajuns started 4-0, claiming wins over Cal State Fullerton, Sam Houston State, Rice, and East Carolina.
In the win over Troy, Alonzo Harris rushed for 137 yards and a touchdown to spark the UL offense while kicker Brett Baer made three field goals to break the Sun Belt Conference record for consecutive fields goals made.
Harris leads the Cajun rushing attack this year, whith 194 yards on 37 carries.
Oklahoma St. fell to Arizona last week, 59-38, dropping the Cowboys to 1-1 on the season.
The two school have met eight previous times, with Oklahoma St. winning all of them, including a 61-34 win over the Cajuns last year in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
