LAFAYETTE – Louisiana faces last week’s opponent on Tuesday night. While Southern Alabama is known for its defense, App State is known for its attack.
The Mountaineers are second in the Sun Belt in points per game, averaging 35.2 points. They are led by senior quarterback Chase Brice who leads the conference in passing yards per game with 272.
Cajuns head coach Billy Napier is confident in the team’s game plan to stop the Mountaineers.
âWe have a lot of respect for the way they play,â Napier said. âWe are brought together in a very similar way. I think they will question our integrity from the gap. Their quarterback played exceptionally in my opinion. He was precise, decisive and distributed the ball well. They played well at all levels.
âThey just do what they do, and they do it really well,â said senior safety Percy Butler. âThat’s why they do a lot of the things they do. I feel like they run the ball a lot to shoot (on the pitch). I feel like they have that connection to their quarterback and their receivers. I believe they completed most of the pictures they took.
Now, with as much respect as the Cajuns give the state of the app, UL is not backing down.
Butler made it clear that the Cajuns’ 24-21 victory in 2020 was no accident. He said a victory on Tuesday would set the tone for the future, saying “we are about to start hosting this conference”.
