Louisiana adds Texas Southern to 2019 football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns have added the Texas Southern Tigers to their 2019 football schedule, the official website of the Ragin’ Cajuns indicates.

Louisiana will host Texas Southern at Cajun Field in Lafayette on Sept. 14, 2019. The contest will mark the first-ever meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.

The Texas Southern Tigers compete in the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) of the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). They wrapped up the 2018 season 1-7 in conference play and 2-9 overall.

Louisiana’s 2019 non-conference football schedule is now tentatively complete with the addition of Texas Southern. The Ragin’ Cajuns are scheduled to open the 2019 season on Saturday, Aug. 31 against Mississippi State at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Other non-conference opponents for Louisiana in 2019 include Liberty at home in Lafayette (Sept. 7) and Ohio on the road (Sept. 21).

In Sun Belt action, Louisiana is scheduled to host Appalachian State, Texas State, Troy, and ULM and travel to Arkansas State, Coastal Carolina, Georgia Southern, and South Alabama.

Louisiana is the third scheduled non-conference opponent for Texas Southern in 2019. The Tigers are also slated to play at Incarnate Word on Sept. 7 and at Houston Baptist on Sept. 28.

There’s no school in Louisiana that goes by that name. There’s Louisiana-Lafayette and Louisiana-Monroe.

You are correct Matthew, no University goes by Louisiana but the athletic teams at Louisiana-Lafayette are called ‘The Louisiana Ragain’ Cajuns”. Have been for years I know Louisiana State Fans don’t like it but that doesn’t stop it from being a fact. Crybaby LSU fans are one of a kind. You are some other whiney LSU fans had the same rant on Saturday’s Down South last week. Everyone calls them Louisiana now including the Sun Belt Conference. It’s even printed on the front of all team jerseys…get over it

I’ve been hassled by fans, and an SID or two, of most of the Louisiana schools on this since 2008. I now call them what they want to be called, what the Sun Belt calls them, and what the major sports sites now call them. Not going to argue either side. Done with it.
