No. 23 La.-Lafayette tries to keep making history vs ULM

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — Don’t tell Louisiana-Lafayette coach Billy Napier that Saturday’s game isn’t significant for his No. 23-ranked football squad. The Ragin’ Cajuns (10-1, 7-0) have already clinched the host spot for the Dec. 4 Sun Belt Conference championship game by winning the league’s West Division for the fourth straight year. Saturday’s regular-season finale against Sun Belt and state rival Louisiana-Monroe won’t affect that. But to Napier, that shouldn’t matter.

Our Views: Premier event for oil and gas is back in Lafayette. Maybe the industry will be back, too.

Return of energy trade show LAGCOE to Lafayette in 2022 rightly places the event back at home base. The Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Exposition was created in Lafayette and remained a mainstay for tourism from 1955 until 2017, when a continuing industry downturn convinced LAGCOE’s leadership to take the show to New Orleans in 2019. Better travel connections, hotel space and proximity to oil and gas corporate offices there would help recover LAGCOE’s dwindling participation in a new site, some believed.
