UPDATE: Cajuns win home opener 49 - 17 over Grambling.


The stage is set for the next chapter of Ragin Cajun Football. A new coach, starting quarterback, and a community that is primed to see the Cajuns live up to their potential.

Cajun field has never looked better as the Cajuns take the field tomorrow night to start their 2018 season against Grambling State. Although this is the first time the two teams have played, all indications are that this will be the beginning of a new in-state rivalry.
