LAFAYETTE - For the third year in a row, the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns football team will be bowling in New Orleans after formally receiving an invitation to the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl.
The Cajuns will play Tulane from Conference USA on Saturday, Dec. 21 beginning at 8:00 p.m. CST in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
The bid was presented to the Ragin' Cajuns by New Orleans Bowl president and CEO Jay Cicero and promptly accepted by Ragin' Cajuns head coach Mark Hudspeth. The Green Wave are coached by former New Orleans Saints assistant Curtis Johnson.
The Ragin' Cajuns snapped a 41-year bowl-less stretch in 2011 when they defeated San Diego State, 32-30, on a last-second 50-yard field goal by Brett Baer.
Last year, Terrance Broadway was named the MVP after throwing for 316 yards and a touchdown and rushing for 108 yards and a score in the Cajuns 43-34 victory over East Carolina.
