Hear the rage of the Cajuns!

It doesn’t matter if you are in Opelousas or Chicago, when you hear someone mention the Ragin’ Cajuns or see our red hot logo, you know it’s the one and only Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns.®

The Ragin’ Cajuns are members of the Sun Belt Conference and compete in the NCAA’s Division I, the highest level of collegiate athletics. We compete in 16 sports, including baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, track and field, softball, soccer and volleyball.

Our student-athletes strive for success on the field, court, and in the classroom. The Student-Athlete Academic Center on campus provides student-athletes with academic support services programs, including assistance with balancing academic priorities, athletic success, and advising and tutoring. We have the highest student-athlete graduation rate in the state and in the Sun Belt Conference.

Our community’s love of the game extends to three distinct sites that allow fans to connect with Louisiana’s athletics program. Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun Athletics is where you’ll find everything needed to get ready for game day—download team schedules, buy tickets, find parking on game day, or apply for tailgating permits—it’s all there!

The Athletic Network provides a place for former University athletes and fans to connect and join support teams for their favorite sports. The site also provides a place for fans to experience the rich history of our athletic program through the sharing of historic articles and preservation of sports-related documents, like this treasure detailing the history of our University mascots.

The Ragin’ Cajuns Athletic Foundation works with supporters to raise the funds needed to enhance every aspect of Louisiana's athletics organization. Whether it’s helping increase the annual athletics budget, securing funding for new facilities, or assisting in the recruitment of the best coaches for our teams, RCAF plays a major role in promoting Ragin’ Cajun pride—all around the world.

Geaux Cajuns!
