UL Softball Falls in Latest Top 25 Poll
The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns fell in one of the major college softball polls, after a 3-2 week.
Louisiana checks in at number 16 in this week's USA Today/NFCA Division I Coaches Poll, which was released on Tuesday.
UL, who is currently 16-6 on the season, was ranked number 15 in the poll last week.
The Cajuns went 3-2 last week, all on the road, splitting a doubleheader with the Texas Longhorns last Thursday in Austin, Texas, before capturing two wins in three tries against the UTA Mavericks in a Sun Belt Conference series played in Arlington, Texas last weekend.
That series win over UTA extended UL's Sun Belt Conference win streak to 57-straight, the longest conference win streak in the nation.
Louisiana returns home on Wednesday evening (weather permitting), playing host to Louisiana Tech in a non-conference contest at Yvette Girouard Field at Lamson Park.
First pitch is slated for 6 p.m.
This weekend, the Cajuns play host to the South Alabama Jaguars in a big Sun Belt Conference series.

Also this weekend, UL begins a league series against Georgia Southern, with a single game on Sunday at 4 p.m., before a doubleheader on Monday at 4 o'clock at Lamson Park.
