ATLANTA (AP) Coach Billy Napier is guarded against No. 19 Louisiana-Lafayette having a letdown Saturday against Georgia State.
The Ragin' Cajuns (1-0, 0-0 Sun Belt Conference) are fresh off a 34-14 upset win at Iowa State, and Napier is mindful that Georgia State pulled a similar feat last year with a season-opening victory at Tennessee.
Beating Iowa State gave Louisiana-Lafayette its first road victory over a ranked team and its second over a Top 25 team, the first coming in 1996 when the Ragin' Cajuns beat Texas A&M. Louisiana-Lafayette is ranked for the first time since 1943.
