• Louisiana looks to build on its best 22-game start since opening 20-2 in the 1972-73 season.

• Louisiana’s current nine-game win streak is tied for the eighth-longest among Division I schools. • Louisiana’s 15 consecutive SBC victories dating back to last season is the longest streak in school history.
