Ragin Cajun Traditions for Football Games at Cajun Field
Football is one of the all-time greatest pastimes for anyone who lives here in Louisiana. Okay, maybe that's exaggerated it because I'm sure not everyone loves football, but so many people do.
One thing that Ragin Cajun fans love is their football. With our football at Cajun Field, there are some great traditions we practice.
Here are some of the things that make all sports, especially football, so memorable at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Who doesn't love our fight song and cheers?
The Ragin' Cajuns Fight Song
Fight on, Cajuns, fight on to victory
For the Red and White,
We sing of triumph and glory,
For our team tonight,
You will hear the rage of the Cajuns,
So let's give a yell, (aiyee)
Hustle up and bustle up and Fight on to victory - go UL!
Cold cush cush
Come on Cajuns
Push! Push! Push!
In addition to the great song and cheers, there are things that happen at our tailgating that are part of the fabric of the football experience at Cajun Field.
At around 5 o'clock on game day, everyone lines up along Stadium Drive for the Cajun Walk. The players will be walking along Stadium Drive, and you get your chance to see them up close and cheer them on. The team comes off of the buses at Gate A at Cajun Field.
Drumline at Russo Park
While tailgating don't miss the Drumline at Russo Park which gets started at 5:45 p.m. this Saturday. It's inspiring and shows how supportive everyone is for the Ragin Cajuns. Your heart will be thumping.
Pregame Pep Rally at Russo Park
At 6:45 p.m. be ready to yell and scream for your Louisiana Ragin Cajuns at the pep rally before the game. The event happens right before the game. It'll happen in front of Russo Park.

The first down for every Cajuns offense play they have the PA announcer say, "It's another Louisiana First Down.
