The Ragin' Cajuns smashed Tulane 41 to 13 in their homecoming game this past Saturday.
It was the first time UL's football team has defeated Tulane since back in 1995 in the Superdome, and Cajuns fans are fired up about the win. They're especially gratified that their team won without their main quarterback, Blaine Gauthier. Sophomore Terrance Broadway filled in.
Head Coach Mark Hudspeth had this to say: "We've had a chance to go back and watch the film and sort of reflect on the win over Tulane; I was real excited with the way our guys battled, played, and kept our home record unblemished now to 8 straight [games]. Like we talk about, we take an awful lot of pride in that and our kids do that and we talked to them about the importance of the game and that it was more than just a game. We had fans that were counting on us and we're looking forward to swinging this rivalry our way and I think we got off on the right foot the other day."
The game was packed, with nearly 30 thousand fans attending. That's the 8th largest crowd in Cajun Field history. The next game for UL is a week from today: Tuesday, October 16th at North Texas.
