Above all the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns are something of a college football throwback. In his second season on the job head coach Billy Napier has made Louisiana an appealing Group of Five NCAA Football betting choice. Louisiana uses a strong round attack for their consistent success. Specifically, the Ragin Cajuns are bowling for the seventh time in nine years. By contrast Miami head coach Chuck Martin has needed much more time. In his sixth season Martin led the Redhawks to the MAC championship. Miami is going to a bowl for just the second time since 2011.
