Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns had unprecedented success on the football field in 2011.

They're being rewarded for that performance in 2012.

The Cajuns will be on national television twice in the 2012 football season on back-to back weeks.

Louisiana will visit North Texas on October 16 or 17 and host Arkansas State on October 23 or 24.

Those are the only two games scheduled for ESPN/ESPN2 that are Sun Belt Conference games.  The league will also have five appearances on ESPNU.

The Cajuns open the 2012 season at Cajun Field in the annual Herbert Heymann Football Classic on September 1.

The Cajuns will also host Tulane, Arkansas State, FIU, Western Kentucky and league football newcomer South Alabama at Cajun Field.  The Cajuns will not play Middle Tennessee this year.
