Despite not playing yesterday due to a game cancelation, Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns moved up one spot in the top 25 of both polls.

The Cajuns, 7-1, moved to #24 in the USA Today Amway/Coaches poll, and #23 in the Associated Press (AP) poll.

Also representing the Sun Belt in the top 25 is the one team that has defeated Louisiana this year. Coastal Carolina (8-0), is #17 in the Coaches Poll and #16 in the AP poll.

The Cajuns are scheduled to play this Saturday in Monroe versus an 0-8 ULM team still seeking their first victory of the year.

Central Arkansas was scheduled to play Louisiana at Cajun Field yesterday on Senior Day, but a COVID-19 outbreak within the football program caused the game to be canceled.

Yesterday, the program announced head coach Billy Napier tested positive for coronavirus.

Here's a complete rundown of each top 25 poll.
