The University of Louisiana - Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns will take on an in-sate opponent in a future football game.

Louisiana will play host to the Nicholls Colonels, in a non-conference contest, scheduled for Saturday, September 11, 2021 at Cajun Field.

The Cajuns have played Nicholls only twice in history, winning 70-7 in 2013, a victory later vacated due to NCAA rules violations, before defeating the Colonels, 24-21, in 1990.

Nicholls, members of the Southland Conference, is coached by Tim Rebowe, a former assistant coach at UL, from 2004-2014.
