The Cajuns won the Sun Belt West division Saturday, solidifying a rematch with Appalachian State in the Sun Belt Championship. As of now the Mountaineers would host. But it's not out of reach for that game to be played in Lafayette. An App. State loss, coupled with a Cajuns win over ULM would open the door.
All of that is mostly out of Louisiana's control, but that doesn't mean Billy Napier won't at least keep an eye on Troy.
"Who won the game, what's the score. That's about it. We have our own grass to mow," Napier said Monday of the Mountaineers game at Troy, Friday night. "We had an opportunity to handle that ourselves and we didn't. That's in someone else's hands."
The Cajuns' head coach was steadfast that his team is not worrying about next weekend, but preparing hard for a ULM team that nearly beat the Cajuns a season ago.
The 5-6 Warhawks are seeking a bowl bid. They beat Coastal Carolina over the weekend 45-42 and will need their season's first winning-streak to earn it.
With a Louisiana win, the Cajuns would book their first 10-win season in school history. Louisiana will get three swings at that mark with a Sun Belt championship next Saturday, and future bowl game awaiting the team.
