If the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns don't make it to the postseason next year, it won't be because of their strength of schedule.

Head coach Tony Robichaux released the schedule today and it includes a start to the season where eleven of the first 15 opponents appeared in postseason play last year.

The Cajuns open the season at Texas for three games in the first of a home and home weekend series., with the Longhorns scheduled to visit Lafayette in 2019. The Cajuns then return home to face Wright State out of the Horizon league.  The Raiders were 38-21 last season, finishing second behind UIC.

Then it's off to Houston for the Shriners' Classic at Minute Maid Park where the Cajuns will face Mississippi State, Kentucky and Vanderbilt.

The fourth and final non conference weekend has a familiar face as South Alabama comes to Russo Park.  The Cajuns and Jaguars are not playing in conference this year because of the rotating schedule and the three game series will not count in the conference standings.

In the midweek the Cajuns will play home and home with McNeese, Southeastern Louisiana, Louisiana Tech and Tulane.  In addition, the Cajuns will host LSU and play the Tigers in the annual Wally Pontiff Classic in New Orleans.  The Cajuns will host Nicholls and New Orleans in single games, while traveling to Southern Mississippi for a two game mid-week series.

In league play, the Cajuns will host Troy, UTA, Little Rock, Coastal Carolina and ULM, while traveling to Georgia Southern, Arkansas State, Appalachian State, Georgia State and Texas State.
