Through 3 Quarters
The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns were expected to win this one, and they are just one quarter away from fulfilling that expectation. After three quarters it's looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Ohio Bobcats as Louisiana lead 28-14. RB Montrell Johnson has led the way so far for the Ragin' Cajuns, as he has punched in three rushing touchdowns.
Louisiana has yet to string together two consecutive wins, but this may be their chance. For now, all signs point to yes.
Ohio @ No. 19 Louisiana
Current Records: Ohio 0-2; Louisiana 1-1
