Tuesday afternoon Cajun fans were able to send of their team in grand fashion as they departed for New Orleans. The team departed from the athletic complex in four touring busses stocked full of players, coaches and support staff.
Dozens of diehard fans showed up in red to wish the team well before getting on the bus. It felt as if it was game day with all the excitement.
But with this being the second year in a row that the Cajuns play in the New Orleans Bowl Coach Mark Hudspeth says it's a little less chaotic than 2011.
The Cajuns start their busy schedule Wednesday with their first of two practices before kick off on Saturday.
