Athletics: From the Desk of Director of Athletics Bryan Maggard

Dear Cajun Nation, Students, and Alumni:
On behalf of our entire Athletics Department, I want to say THANK YOU for the amazing support provided to our Football program on October 9th, during a nationally televised game vs. Appalachian State. You Sheauxed Up and Sheauxed Out!  
As we prepare for our next home contest, please know we are focused on providing an enjoyable gameday experience at Cajun Field for the 70th Annual Homecoming Game on Saturday, November 2nd, against Texas State.  Below are just a few ways we continue to improve the experience for all our patrons:
  • Pregame Atmosphere – our Football home game atmosphere gets a boost from vibrant pregame concerts under the oak tree along with Cajun Field tailgating that is second to none. Come out and enjoy Cajun Walk approximately two hours before kickoff.
  • Student Tailgating – our students are seeing more excitement and activities during their pre-game experience at Cajun Field. With more than 4,000 rowdy students vs. App. State, we look forward to an even larger group for Homecoming!
  • Fan Friendly Concessions – everything from $1 hot dogs, $2 domestic beers, and $3 hamburgers, there is something for everyone on the Louisiana Athletics' concessions menu this season. For Homecoming, our concessions partner will provide additional professional staff to improve the fan experience and accommodate a larger crowd.
  • Social Media Engagement – our social channels are growing and continue to be a big piece of how we interact with Louisiana fans of all ages. Make sure you're following the Ragin' Cajuns on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. See the full list here.
I trust Saturday, November 2nd, will be our largest home crowd since 2013. Single-game tickets can be purchased in advance here or reserve your seat for the rest of the season by clicking here. Should you be interested in reserving a Tailgate or RV spot, click here or call 337 851-RCAF.

We need you to #PackCajunField and create a home field advantage that will help ensure a Ragin' Cajuns Homecoming victory!

Let's Geaux,
Bryan Maggard, Ph.D.
