Louisiana Continues to Rise in the College Football Rankings
The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns traveled to the mountains of Appalachian State, a place they had never won against a team they've never beaten in program history until Friday. Louisiana finally slayed the dragon that was the Mountaineers 24-21 hanging on late in that one for the win.
The Cajuns finished the regular season, 9-1, and moved up to #17 in both the USA Today Amway/Coaches Poll and the Associated Press (AP) poll.
Also representing the Sun Belt in the top 25 is the one team that has defeated Louisiana this year. Coastal Carolina (10-0) coming off a big win against #13 BYU on Saturday night, they've moved up to #13 in the Coaches Poll and #11 in the AP poll.
The Cajuns will enjoy a week off before they head to Conway, SC to face Coastal Carolina in what should be an epic Sun Belt Conference Title Game as the Cajuns will hope that their third time in this game will be the charm.
Here's a complete rundown of each top 25 polls.
