Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns Football History

The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns formerly known as the Southwestern Louisiana Bulldogs burst onto the scene in 1901. They became the Ragin’ Cajuns in 1974.
The Ragin’ Cajuns have been a part of multiple conferences including the Gulf States Conference, the Southland Conference, and multiple stints as an independent.
During their history they’ve managed to win ten conference championships and four divisional titles.
The Ragin’ Cajuns were amazing from 2019-2021. They posted a 35-5 overall record and a 22-2 conference record under head coach Billy Napier. Despite being a Group of Five team, they were known to give Power Five teams runs for their money. In the 2020 season opener, Napier’s team went on the road and upset 23rd-ranked Iowa State in convincing fashion, 31-14.
The team rode that big win to a 9-1 regular-season record in 2020 with its only loss coming on the road to a talented Coastal Carolina team 30-27. The Ragin’ Cajuns went on to play UTSA in the First Responders Bowl and walked away victorious 31-24. Running back Elijah Mitchell, who went on to be drafted by the San Francisco 49ers, was the star of the night after he rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown. They finished the season as the 15th-ranked team, improving one spot from their final ranking at the end of the previous season.
The Ragin’ Cajuns looked to pull off another Week 1 upset in 2021 against the Texas Longhorns, but just weren’t up to the task that soon after losing Mitchell to the draft. After dropping the season opener, ULL went on to win every game that season, including a 36-21 New Orleans Bowl win.
The Ragin’ Cajuns have had several players go on to have good NFL careers including Super Bowl quarterback Jake Delhomme. Delhomme is the all-time leading passer at Louisiana with 9,216 yards. Additionally, Super Bowl winning wide receiver Brandon Stokley attended the University of Louisiana. Stokley is the all-time leading receiver in Ragin’ Cajun history with 3,702 yards.
