This is the first time that Tulane has qualified for a bowl game since 2002 as they meet a team that has made the New Orleans Bowl their home for the past three seasons. The year has been disappointing for Louisiana-Lafayette, who lost their first two games and then won eight straight. However, they ended up losing two more games at the end of the season and failed to outright win the Sun Belt title.
Tulane finished 7-5, and while Louisiana-Lafayette might have finished in disappointing style, the Green Wave are in a bowl game for the first time in 11 years, so this is a game where the underdog might have the momentum. Both teams are without their quarterbacks at full strength.
Louisiana-Lafayette quarterback Terrance Broadway missed the final regular season game with a broken arm. Tulane quarterback Nick Montana, son of Joe Montana, has been slowed down with a shoulder injury.
The Tulane Green Wave vs. Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns live stream kicks off at 9 p.m. EST.
