Louisiana football ranked No. 23 in the preseason Associated Press poll, which was released on Monday.

This is the second major Top 25 poll that UL has landed in. Last week UL ranked No. 23 in the USA Today/Amway Coaches Poll.

Louisiana checked in as the second-highest ranked Sun Belt Conference school, just one spot below No. 22 Coastal Carolina. The Cajuns are also one of two Louisiana schools to be ranked in the Top 25 along with No. 16 LSU.
