Cajuns Return After Canceled Game to Face ULM

Cajuns face ULM in Rivalry game November 28th

Lafayette, LA (KADN) -- The Ragin' Cajuns momentum took a slight hit this week after their  game against Central Arkansas was canceled because of COVID-19. The team resumed practicing on Saturday, but their four-game winning streak has to now wait until November 28th against ULM. Head Coach Billy Napier came down with COVID-19 and is in self-isolation away from his team.

"I tested postive last week and no lie it was a rough day and half or so there in terms of symptoms," Napier said. "Now I feel great and I've been back to normal for a couple days and excited to do this week. We are having to do it a little bit different. "

"It's a rivalry game, " Ragin' Cajuns safety Kam Pedescleaux said. "It doesn't matter what factors are playing, we are still going to take seriously. It is bragging rights for a year."

Offensive lineman Max Mitchell went to Neville High School in Monroe. He remembers his own friends back home heckling him behind the bench during previous games against the Warhawks.

"I think we we be just fine," Mitchell said. "I think we have been playing alot of guys this year. Going week-to-week we change about every week. Everybody that needs to be here will be here."

Coach Napier says he plans to drive to Monroe seperately from the team. He won't let his team look past the Warhawks because even though they have not won a game all year, the rivalry matchup has come down the last posession each of the past two seasons. Kickoff is Saturday afternoon at 2 in Monroe.
