Oct. 15 or 16*: Louisiana-Lafayette at Western Kentucky
The Ragin' Cajuns won 31-27 at home last season. Quarterback Terrance Broadway, who returns for his junior season, rallied Louisiana-Lafayette from a 27-17 deficit late in the fourth quarter. Broadway threw for a touchdown with fewer than three minutes remaining and then scampered into the end zone on a 14-yard run with 38 seconds left to seal the victory.
*The Sun Belt website says the conference "will have two midweek appearances on ESPN or ESPN2 and four Thursday night appearances on ESPNU."
The Thursday night games are set, but Louisiana-Lafayette and Western Kentucky is one of two games that will be played either Tuesday or Wednesday night.
