Louisiana and UAB haven't met on the football field since September 21, 2002.

But that's going to change.

The two schools announced today they've come to an agreement on a home and home series, starting in Birmingham on September 16, 2023, with the return trip to Cajun Field slated for September 19, 2026.

The 2023 game gives the Cajuns three non conference games, including a home contest with New Mexico State and a road trip to Minnesota.  The 2026 contest joins a road trip to Wyoming on that year's schedule.

The 2002 matchup was won by the Cajuns, 34-0.  It was the first career win for former head coach Rickey Bustle.
