New Orleans Bowl: East Carolina vs. Louisiana-Lafayette

Bowl: New Orleans Bowl
Toasting Town: New Orleans
Vintage: 2001

Louisiana-Lafayette: The Ragin-Cajuns have an efficient offense, ranking 9th nationally in yards per play. They did not beat anyone of note, though their effort at Florida, losing late on a blocked punt, lingers in the memory. They should have a substantial home-field advantage (expect that point to be made early and often).

East Carolina: There’s not much to like here. The Pirates went 7-1 against Conference USA, but that was against Conference USA. Their best win was beating Houston at home. They played one-score games late in the season against UAB, Tulane and Marshall.

Points: These teams rank 83rd and 86th respectively in yards allowed per play.

Recreational Prediction: Louisiana-Lafayette (-4.5).
