LAFAYETTE - Louisiana-Lafayette hardly resembles the downtrodden program that coach Mark Hudspeth took over in 2011.

The Ragin' Cajuns have won the last two New Orleans Bowls, marking the first consecutive bowl wins in school history. Hudspeth also has posted ULL's first back-to-back nine-win seasons.

But one thing has been missing: a Sun Belt title.

This season, with dual-threat quarterback Terrance Broadway looking to build on his 2012 breakout season, the Ragin' Cajuns are co-favorites to win their first league title since finishing in a three-way tie for first place in 2005. Also back is junior running back Alonzo Harris, who had 881 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns in 2012.

Hudspeth, now 18-8 in his two seasons in Lafayatte, is confident the Cajuns will continue building on their success.
