LAFAYETTE - The Southern Jags are looking for a repeat performance of their SWAC championship starting tonight at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette.
The Ragin Cajuns won a share of the Sun Belt Conference title last year and their 3rd straight R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl. They will be looking for their first conference title since 1970 when they were the Gulf States conference.
Although the Jags are picked to repeat as champions, they will have to do with with a new starting quarterback. Deonte Shorts is a former Southern Lab standout and will get his chance on the gridiron tonight. He will be helped out by a veteran team and highly rated transfers around him.
For the Cajuns, Terrance Broadway is the preseason Sun Belt offensive player of the year. The former Capitol high standout is now a senior: he threw for 2419 yards and 19 touchdowns last season.
So whether you're watching the game from Cajun Field or on the Bluff, the Jaguars start their quest for an encore championship performance tonight.
