Friday Football Update
This weekend is going to be a busy one for Louisiana football.
First, the Ragin Cajun's are taking on Big 12 team Oklahoma State University. This will be a big game for the Cajuns considering OSU is a much bigger program than any team they've played this season.
The Cajuns are going into the game with a 2-0 record after defeating Troy last weekend 37-17. Blaine Gautier will be playing after bruising his ribs during the Troy game. We asked ESPN 1420's Steve Peloquin's opinion on the Oklahoma State game and he said,
"It's going to be an uphill battle because Oklahoma has such a strong offensive attack, but the Cajuns are playing so well this year, so anything can happen. Especially after seeing ULM beat Arkansas last week."
The game can be heard on ESPN 1420 and Hot 107.9 this Saturday at 11:00 AM.
Next up is the LSU Tigers. The Tigers are hosting the Idaho Vandals at Tiger Stadium. The Tigers are 2-0 on the season after have large spread games for their first two games. But the Vandals are bringing a major passing game that should keep the Tigers on their toes.
The Saints are taking on the Carolina Panthers and are seeking retribution after their season opener last week where they lost 40-32 against the Washington Redskins. The Saints are really trying to pump up the defense after they let 40 points get through last week. It was also the first week with new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.
The game is this Sunday at noon and can be heard on 97.3 The Dawg and watched on Fox.
