The Cajuns defeated WKU, 5-3, on Thursday, on a walk-off grand slam home run by Shellie Landry in the bottom half of the seventh inning, while the Jaguars were an 8-1 winner over ULM.

Louisiana, who is 42-7-1, overall, comes into the game riding a 13-game win streak, including wins in 34 of their last 36 games.
