Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns (-18, 70) at Arkansas State Red Wolves

7:30 p.m. ET

Burke: A horseplayer once told me to fade a horse off of its all-time best performance. I don’t know that Louisiana had an all-timer last Tuesday against Appalachian State, but as far as performances against the Mountaineers go, it was pretty impressive.

Louisiana was beaten twice by App State in 2018 and 2019, with the second of those losses in the Sun Belt Conference Championship Game. Last year’s revenge may have been tempered by COVID-19, but this year’s 41-13 rout was not. The Ragin’ Cajuns racked up 6.59 yards per play and were + 4 in the turnover margin department in the runaway win.

Louisiana scored 21 points directly from App State turnovers and got intercepted in the end zone on the other. Up until that point, the Ragin’ Cajuns had struggled in back-to-back weeks against South Alabama and Georgia Southern and had only beaten Nicholls by three. Louisiana bludgeoned Ohio, but the Bobcats are awful.
