Football: Ticket Sales Underway vs. Mississippi State at the Superdome
LAFAYETTE - Coming soon to New Orleans' premiere destination for sporting events, Louisiana Football will kick off the 2019 season at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome against Mississippi State (Saturday, Aug. 31). Head coach Billy Napier leads the Ragin' Cajuns into 2019 after an exciting opening season that included a Sun Belt Conference West Division Championship and a trip to the AutoNation Cure Bowl in Orlando.
Pairing the big-time stage of the Superdome with an exciting nonconference matchup, Louisiana fans have the opportunity to secure tickets now. Fans can visit RaginCajuns.com/NOLA19 or place orders by phone at (337) 265-2170.
Napier's inaugural season with the Ragin' Cajuns not only secured Louisiana a bowl trip for the first time since 2016, it also spawned arguably the greatest recruiting effort in program history. Napier and staff secured the No. 1 recruiting class in the Sun Belt in 2019, which included 17 student-athletes from the state of Louisiana.
The 2019 edition of Louisiana Football will feature a strong returning core of offensive playmakers, including the return of the top trio of running backs in the nation. Returning rushers Trey Ragas, Elijah Mitchell and Raymond Calais combined for 2,912 yards last season - a mark that stands head and shoulders above the rest of the country. Ragas, Mitchell and Calais are slated to line up behind all five starters from last season's offensive line.
Nine regular starters return from the Ragin' Cajuns' 2018 defensive unit, including senior linebacker and New Orleans native Jacques Boudreaux, who ranked fifth in the conference in tackles (93) last season.
