We’ve seen the Ragin’ Cajuns play some darn good football of late. The squad has three straight victories, scoring at least 35 points in each of those games, and the only losses of the season came against the Kansas State Wildcats and the Arkansas Razorbacks, very forgivable defeats. Western Kentucky has won and covered three in a row as well, and we have seen it get the job done with defense. The Hilltoppers are allowing 23.8 points per game this season, but a lot of those points came off of turnovers, especially in that game against the Tennessee Volunteers. This is going to be a heck of a game between a pair of powerhouses in the Sun Belt.
However, we really believe that this is a game where the Ragin’ Cajuns are going to end up winning SU. QB Terrance Broadway is one of the best athletes in the Sun Belt. He has already thrown for 1,153 yards and 10 TDs this year, and he has four TDs on the ground as well. Broadway has seven TDs through the air in his last two games, and though those were both easier games than what we will see in this one, this is a nice spot with some points on our side. Western Kentucky has covered three in a row in this series, but last year was a big win for the Ragin’ Cajuns at home. If the defense for ULL can find a way to contain RB Antonio Andrews and force QB Brandon Doughty into more turnovers (the team already has 12 picks this year), this is a game where the Cajuns should roll towards the top of the Sun Belt and probably eliminate the Hilltoppers from the conference title race.
