The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns ran away from their in-state rivals the ULM Warhawks on Saturday as they blasted them in Monroe 70-20.

The Cajuns, 8-1, moved to #21 in the USA Today Amway/Coaches poll, and #20 in the Associated Press (AP) poll.

Also representing the Sun Belt in the top 25 is the one team that has defeated Louisiana this year. Coastal Carolina (9-0) coming off a big win against Texas State and officially clinching the Sun Belt East, is #14 in the Coaches Poll and #14 in the AP poll.

The Cajuns are scheduled to play this Friday in Boone, NC to attempt to finally slay the dragon that is the only team that Billy Napier has yet to beat in his UL coaching career in Appalachian State. The Mountaineers are 7-2 overall and 5-1 in the Sun Belt Conference hoping to put themselves in a better Bowl position with yet another victory over Louisiana.
