The Ragin' Cajuns open the year on the road against Tulane (Feb. 19-21), marking the first time since 1963 the team has started a season at Tulane.

Following opening weekend, Louisiana welcomes Louisiana Tech (Feb. 23), Louisiana State (Feb. 24) and Rice (Feb. 26-28) to close out the month of February. The Ragin' Cajuns will start the home slate against Louisiana Tech for the first time since 2005. 

March will be a tremendous test for the program, with weekend bouts at Russo Park against Houston Baptist (March 5-7), TCU (March 18-21), Coastal Carolina (March 26-29), and a weekend road series at Southern Miss (March 12-14). Before the weekend series in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, the Ragin' Cajuns also have a midweek matchup at Mississippi State on March 10.

Sprinkled throughout the highly competitive month of March, will be three more midweek games all at in-state foes Louisiana Tech (March 2), McNeese State (March 3) and Nicholls State (March 16).

Louisiana will begin the month of April on the road for a three-game conference series against ULM (April 1-3). The Ragin' Cajuns then head home for four games for a midweek contest against Nicholls State (April 6) and a conference series against Arkansas State (April 9-11). South Alabama will be the next stop for Louisiana as they play the Jaguars in Mobile, Alabama, from April 16-18.

To round out April, McNeese State travels to Lafayette for a midweek game on April 21 before the Ragin' Cajuns go to Little Rock (April 23-25) and host ULM (April 27) and Texas State (April 30-May 2).

The Ragin' Cajuns then go on a four-game road swing at conference foe UT Arlington (May 14-16) and New Orleans (May 18), before ending the regular season with a weekend series at home against Troy (May 20-22).

The Sun Belt Conference Tournament will be held in Montgomery, Alabama, at Montgomery Riverwalk Stadium on May 24-30.
