Southeastern Louisiana and Louisiana to Meet in 2022

The Southeastern Louisiana Lions and Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns will square off again in 2022 according to the Lions’ website.

The game is scheduled for Saturday, September 3 in Lafayette, Louisiana. The two in-state schools were frequent opponents from 1931 through 1972 having met 37 times during that span.

They have met twice since 1972 – once in 1981, which was won by Southeastern Louisiana and the most recent contest in 2017. The Ragin’ Cajuns won that highly entertaining season opener 51-48. The Lions were an extra point away from tying the game at 49 but the kick was blocked and returned for two points to give the final scoreline of 51-48.

Overall, the Ragin’ Cajuns lead 19-17-3 in the series. Louisiana has only one other FCS opponent on its future schedules against Nicholls in 2021.

Southeastern Louisiana has a few FBS opponents on its schedule. They face Louisiana Tech (2021), Nebraska (2021), Mississippi State (2023), Tulane (2024), and South Alabama (2026).
