The Cajun Crown is the name of the rivalry trophy between the Louisiana–Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns (formerly the Southwestern Louisiana Bulldogs) and the McNeese State Cowboys.[1][2] The two teams have met 37 times on the football field, with McNeese State currently holding a 20–15–2 edge in the all time series. The game has been infrequently played since 1986, following the Ragin' Cajuns move from the NCAA's Division I-AA to Division I-A.
