It was a tough game for the UL Ragin Cajuns Tuesday night on national television. The Cajuns lost to Arkansas State at home, the game was broadcast on ESPN2. But to build up support for the Cajuns, Coach Hudspeth had asked fans to "white out" Cajun field. And he certainly got his wish.
Whether you were in the game, or tailgating outside the gates, Cajun fans didn't disappoint with the white out.
"A lot of people had to work you know and stuff but said, screw it, it's the white out game!"
Dominic Barthelmy is a senior this year at UL, he said he never misses a game.
"Before we even started winning I was here at the games, so I'm not just one of these bandwagon fans, I was here since the Bustle ages," said Barthelmy.
Cajun Field was a sea of white, but some fans took it to the next level, like Barthelmy. He was decked out in white, with a red mask and two big red D-fence signs.
"I've got the D-fence because we've got to represent," said Barthelmy. "The mask is just to scare Arkansas state. It's to scare them."
And then there was Ben Herman, Andrew Becnel and James Bell. They showed their school pride -- shirtless with painted chests spelling out U-L-L.
"Skin tight for the Cajuns right now... School pride all the way, school pride," they exclaimed.
Being on ESPN2 helped bring out the fanatics. But one group of fans was just happy to watch from the comfort of their RV. No radio needed Tuesday night.
"No it's usually not televized but this week it is so we're out here watching it on a Tuesday night," said Blake Granger.
