Louisiana Interim Director of Athletics Scott Farmer announced yesterday that the Ragin' Cajuns have set a new record for season ticket sales.

Farmer made the announcement prior to Coach Mark Hudspeth's regular Monday media luncheon.  The 8,153 season tickets as of noon Monday is a 27 percent increase over last season's mark and is over 600 tickets more than the previous high.

The Cajuns open the home portion of the 2011 season Saturday night against Nicholls State.
