Lafayette Mayor-President Josh Guillory gave Louisiana head football coach Billy Napier the key to the City of Lafayette Wednesday.

The honor was given to Napier for guiding the Cajuns to a Sun Belt Conference championship this season.

Guillory also addressed the team during their practice, ahead of the Cajuns traveling to Dallas for this weekend's bowl game. As the team looked on, Guillory read the official proclamation declaring the team Sun Belt Champions.

Louisiana and Coastal Carolina were set to face off for the Sun Belt title on December 19, but the game was canceled due to COVID-19 cases in Coastal Carolina's program. As a result, both teams were named Co-Champions.

The 9-1 Cajuns take on UTSA Saturday in the First Responder Bowl. Kickoff is at 2:30 p.m. and the game will air on KATC.
