What to Know

The Louisiana Ragin Cajuns haven't won a game against the Georgia Southern Eagles since Jan. 12 of 2019, but they'll be looking to end the drought this past Saturday. The Ragin Cajuns will stay at home another game and welcome Georgia Southern at 8 p.m. ET Jan. 29 at Cajundome. Georgia Southern should still be riding high after a win, while Louisiana will be looking to right the ship.

Louisiana was close but no cigar this past Thursday as they fell 68-64 to the Georgia State Panthers. The contest was as close as the oddsmakers predicted, but Louisiana had been the slight favorite coming in.

Meanwhile, even if it wasn't a dominant performance, the Eagles beat the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks 50-45 this past Thursday.

When the teams previously met two seasons ago, the Ragin Cajuns and Georgia Southern were neck-and-neck, but Louisiana came up empty-handed after an 82-81 loss. The defeat knocked Louisiana out of the playoffs, so expect them to come at Georgia Southern with a vengeful fire.
