LAFAYETTE (Louisiana Athletics) -- No. 19-ranked Louisiana Football has been selected to take on Conference USA foe UTSA in the SERVPRO First Responder Bowl on Saturday, Dec. 26, in Dallas, Texas. Kickoff is slated for 2:30 p.m. CT on ABC.

The postseason bowl appearance will be the 10th in program history and the third-straight under head coach Billy Napier. Louisiana holds an official record of 5-2 in bowl games.


Louisiana and UTSA will be meeting for the first time when they square off in Dallas. In the Coach Napier era, the Ragin’ Cajuns own a 1-0 record over Conference USA opposition, the lone win coming on Oct. 23, 2020, when the team defeated UAB, 24-20, in Birmingham.
The Ragin’ Cajuns were slated to play in their third-straight Sun Belt Conference Championship Game on Saturday, Dec. 19, against No. 9 Coastal Carolina, but the game was canceled due to COVID-19 issues within the Chanticleers program. As a result of the cancellation, the Ragin’ Cajuns were declared co-champions.
