Texas State Bobcats at Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns Overview

The Ragin’ Cajuns enter off a win that’s bound to generate a fair amount of fanfare when their typically-accommodating defense shut the door on Idaho’s offensive operations. Many remember the Cajuns falling in a double-overtime thriller to Monroe, several weeks ago. That image has been erased with Lafayette’s outright upset of the Vandals in Moscow as a six-point road pup. The game despite being prognosticated as an offensive-oriented one was more focused on defense. The Cajuns would hold the Vandals to one offensive touchdown. That one touchdown would come when Idaho marked first in the first quarter and then Lafayette would say no more. The final would be 21-16, Ragin’ Cajuns. Texas State comes in off the heels of a loss to a team that Louisiana-Lafayette knows very well, Louisiana-Monroe. As a 6.5-point home dog, the Bobcats hung with the Warhawks for a half and then UL-Monroe pulled away in what finished as a 45-27 loss for the boys from San Marcos. The Bobcats have never beaten the Ragin’ Cajuns in recent history.

Texas State Bobcats at Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns Week 7 Prediction

Situationally, this contest has all the makings for Lafayette to suffer a huge let-down and provides us with an excellent fade opportunity. The stock in Texas State has sunk even further after falling to the team that Lafayette failed to beat in their annual Battle of the Bayou. Nevertheless, Lafayette pulled off an upset of a team that won nine games in 2016. Thus, the Cajuns’ stock has been revitalized. As a result of the contrasting directions both team have gone in last week, the number next to Texas State’s name is likely inflated and we will go ahead and take advantage.
