This was a great week for Louisiana football. LSU under Head Coach Brian Kelly continues to roll being ranked No. 6 in the new Association Press Top 25 college football rankings released Sunday (Nov. 20th), after beating the University of Alabama-Birmingham, 41-10. This came on the heels of their stunning defeat of their archrival Alabama Crimson Tide, led by LSU Coach Nick Saban. This year, they are showing they have what it takes to win.
Closer to home the Tulane Green Wave under Head Coach Willie Fritz are 9-2 and moved up two spots in the poll to No. 19 after shutting down SMU, 59-24. This week the Green Wave are on the road where they will face off against the 21st-ranked Cincinnati Bearcats, who are (9-2). If Tulane wins this game, they’ll host the AAC Championship Game.
Depending on how both teams fair in the coming games we may see a match-up between the two Louisiana powerhouse football teams playing in the Cotton Bowl.
