LAFAYETTE - The 2012 football season will officially get underway on Wednesday when second-year UL head coach Mark Hudspeth welcomes 105 student-athletes back to campus for the start of preseason practice.
After checking into the dormitories in the morning, the annual team photo will be taken in the afternoon at Cajun Field and the group will meet as a team in the evening. The first preseason practice is slated to begin at 8:55 a.m. on Wednesday.
The Cajuns return 15 starters and 39 lettermen from the 2011 that went 9-4 to tie a school record for wins. UL made its first bowl appearance since 1970, defeating San Diego State, 32-30, in the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl.
