Louisiana (0-0) vs. Grambling (0-0) Game Preview

In a great battle in Louisiana, the Ragin’ Cajuns need to put a disappointing 2017 in the rearview mirror with a hot start under new head man Billy Napier. However, Grambling is more than good enough to win this.

The Tigers are coming off a strong 11-2 season, welcoming back a loaded offense and a razor-sharp team that isn’t going to make a slew of big mistakes.

With road games against Mississippi State and Alabama coming up soon, lose, and it’ll be a nightmare of a start for the Ragin’ Cajuns.

One Reason Why Grambling Will Win

Can Louisiana start protecting the quarterback?

Last year’s offensive line had a nightmare of a time keeping defenses out of the backfield and allowed 36 sacks. With both starting offensive tackles done, it might just be a rocky start against a Grambling defense that finished third in the FCS in sacks and second in tackles for loss.

Watch out for linebackers De’Arius Christmas and De’Andre Hogues. They’re  devastating playmakers who can camp out in the backfield all game long. However, if Louisiana cam keep the QB upright …

One Reason Why Louisiana Will Win

The passing game should get going right away.

The quarterback battle has been on all offseason, but Levi Lewis is a baller and Andre Nunez can bomb away. Best of all, the top eight receivers return – and they can all play.

The key will be takeaways – Louisiana can’t give them up. Grambling was and will be great at coming up with turnovers, especially interceptions. As long as Napier’s team is careful with the ball and doesn’t make a whole slew of mistakes, the offense can score on this D.

As good as Grambling was last year, it still got ripped by a mediocre Tulane ream 43-14.

What’s Going To Happen

How much better with the Ragin’ Cajun defense be right away? Can it handle the Grambling balance, and can the other side deal with the defensive pressure?

The offense will be quick-hitting and more effective right away, and while the defense won’t be fantastic, it’ll take on a different look with far more key stops than it came up with throughout most of last year.

Grambling will have its share of good moments to keep it close, but the Louisiana passing game will look and play terrific when it has to.
