The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns and Texas State Bobcats athletic departments will be competing in a Social Media Challenge beginning Monday, Sept. 30 at 10 a.m, and running until Saturday, Oct. 5 at 5p.m. Just one hour before kickoff between the two school's football programs.
The challenge will span the three current major social media platforms, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and will be based solely on the number of followers or 'likes' gained in the time period. The winning school will gain pride, and the losing school will be forced to publish a photograph of either a mascot, coach or administrator wearing a t-shirt from the winning school.
The Ragin' Cajuns social media platforms will also be hosting multiple daily contests, including trivia and scavenger hunts, testing fans knowledge of not only the athletic history, but the school and cities as well.
"This is a great opportunity for both schools to spread their fan bases, as well as have fun doing it," Louisiana Assistant Director for Athletics Marketing and Promotions, Eric Maron said. "It's something we have been excited about and I know that Texas State has been excited as well. We wanted a creative way to grow our fan base on social media."
Aside from the contests that will be running through the week, the Official Ragin' Cajuns social media pages are the best way to get up-to-date news on Ragin' Cajuns athletics.
Fans are encouraged to talk about the contest on any Social Media outlet, to use the UL FanChallenge. We are pushing the use of ULFanChallenge and TXSTFanChallenge during the contest so people can track progress on their own.
