I’m rocking with Louisiana here. I just don’t like this Buffalo team if I’m being 100% honest, as the defense is an issue and we’ve yet to see them fare well against a D-I opponent this season. Louisiana is just the better team across the board, especially on the offensive end. I just don’t see the Cajuns having too much of an issue getting the job done in this one, so give me the Cajuns.
