College Football: UL Lafayette vs. Georgia

September 3, 2010

The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns will square off against the Georgia Bulldogs in the season opener that will take place on the 4th of September. The game will be played in Georgia as Louisiana tries to come and pull the upset.

The Bulldogs are a solid team every year. Last season the team was led by quarterback Joe Cox. Cox had a solid season and will be difficult to replace. There are some things that could improve with the loss of Cox however.

Cox was known to make a few too many turnovers as he threw 15 interceptions last season. That isn’t a terrible number, but there is a good chance that someone could step into this role and do a better job of taking care of the ball than he did during his time at Georgia. The Bulldogs will start the season with a top 25 ranking and will have hopes of climbing up the charts from the beginning.

The Ragin’ Cajuns are coming off of a 6-6 season. The team went 4-4 in the Sun Belt conference in 2009. The Cajuns will need a bit more from their running game this season. Last year their leading rusher did not even manage to rush for 500 yards. The Cajuns will need a more consistent running game to control the clock.

By controlling the clock they will be able to protect the leads that they build over the season. Unfortunately this is difficult to do without a running game that is consistent.
