UL Football Moves Up in National Polls
The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns are on the rise in the national rankings of both major college football polls this week.
Louisiana, who is ranked nationally for a second-consecutive week, and for the fourth time in the last five weeks, comes in at number 21 in the AP Poll, as well as the Amway Coaches Poll, up two spots from a week ago in both polls.
The Cajuns, who are 3-0, overall, and 2-0 in Sun Belt Conference play, return to the gridiron on Wednesday night when they host the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers in a Sun Belt Conference match-up at Cajun Field.
