Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Battle of the Bayou

Rival Team: ULL Ragin' Cajuns

The Battle of the Bayou between UL- Lafayette and UL- Monroe began in 1951 and had taken place every year since 1953. UL- Monroe may have won the first meeting 13-6, but since then things have been tightly contested with UL- Lafayette holding a 26-24 all-time series lead. A traveling trophy in the shape of a wooden boot was added in 2002, which only furthered the bragging rights that came along with winning this game. The Battle of the Bayou is one of the fiercest rivalries in the Sun Belt, and a must see for any college football fan.

Trail of Tears Classic

Rival Team: Arkansas State Red Wolves

ULM and Arkansas State had met on a somewhat regular basis prior since 1959, but things didn’t kick-off until 2006 when ULM joined the Sun Belt Conference. The Red Wolves lead the all-time series 22 games to 14 games and have a five-game winning streak that the Warhawks hope to snap this year.
