by Raphael Esparza - 7/17/2014
2013 Record: 9-4
2014 Las Vegas Season Win Total: 8.5*
2014 Season Win Total Picks NCAA Football: 'Over'
The Cajuns were a bit of a surprise team for me in 2013, winning nine out of their last 11 games including a Bowl victory over Tulane. They did lose their last two conference games and this year I smell an even better team in Lafayette.
The main reason why I like the Cajuns this season is that they are a veteran, experienced team with 17 returning starters. Its also crucial that the Cajuns have the league's top quarterback, senior Terrance Broadway. Broadway was battling ankle problems all last year but this season he is healthy and the wide outs are probably the best in the league as well. He is the captain for a loaded offense and the Cajuns are the team to beat in the Sun Belt.
The Cajuns have a tough four-game stretch and they have to travel to Ole Miss and Boise. But if they can go 2-2 heading to October then I believe they will still be the team to beat.Arkansas State has to come to Lafayette and if they survive their road schedule then theyshould go bowling again.
I think that 8.5is the perfect number because of the road schedule. I do lean towards the 'over' because of their QB, veteran leadership and overall experience from last year.If Lafayette can find a way to win road games at Texas State, at UL-Monroe, and at Troy then they will win the Sun Belt Conference.
