Cajuns Drop Slightly in Coaches Top 25 Poll
The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns, who were idle this weekend, fell just a little in one of the major top 25 college football polls.
Louisiana checks in at number 18 in this week's Amway Coaches Top 25 poll, which was released on Sunday, down one spot from a week ago.
Last week, the Cajuns were ranked at number 17 Coaches Poll, while also checking in at number 17 in the Coaches Poll.

UL is currently 9-1, overall, and 7-1 in Sun Belt Conference play, winning the Western Division title and securing them a spot in the league championship game for the third consecutive year.
The Cajuns return to action on Saturday, December 19 when they travel to Conway, South Carolina to take on the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers in the Sun Belt Conference Football Championship.
Kickoff time is now slated for 2:30 p.m.
