Deggs: Ragin’ Cajuns & Tigers Getting Together for ‘3-Hour Party’.
Tuesday night the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns travel across the Atchafalaya Basin to play the #1 ranked LSU Tigers at 6:30P at Alex Box Stadium. Both teams come in a bit banged up but with different goals.
LSU basically has the national seed wrapped up. If they don't completely fall apart or sustain more injuries, the Tigers will host a Regional and if victorious, a Super Regional.
Meanwhile, the Ragin' Cajuns find themselves, streaking, in both directions. Louisiana had won six straight before dropping three in a row. They snapped their losing streak, winning Game 2 of a doubleheader against Troy, Sunday afternoon at The Tigue.
But while LSU is trying to get healthy for a College World Series push, the Ragin' Cajuns are hoping to just qualify for the NCAA Tournament. Currently, the Cajuns' RPI is 77, which without a Sun Belt Conference Tournament win, will not get them into the postseason.
A win against LSU will help as well as series wins against Coastal Carolina & Southern Miss.
Regardless of the outcome, it's always fun when the Ragin' Cajuns & Tigers get together. As Louisiana's Head Coach Matt Deggs put it..."It's an opportunity for 2 crazed fans bases...to get together for a 3-hour party."
The Ragin' Cajuns pre-game show begins at 6P with the first pitch scheduled for 6:30P. Listen to all of the action on 103.3 The Goat.
