With ESPN broadcasting to a national audience, the pressure is on and fans are pumped up. Everywhere you look, fans will be sporting Ragin' Cajun pride.
"Because we're doing so well, because we have a coach so lively, because we have a team that's made such a dramatic turn around, because we have fans that are really exciting for others to watch on tv, we're getting more attention more television audiences," said Maron.
Fans have high hopes for tonight, they're not only expecting a win but also hoping this game can help lead them back to a bowl game.
"The crowd and the stadium really does impact our players as we saw last week when they had that big turn around and came back and won the game," said Maron.
"This year is special because we've only lost twice and we're headed back to a bowl game hopefully with a couple wins," said Maron.
