The Ragin’ Cajuns of Louisiana-Lafayette suffered a setback against Jackson State in their opening game of the NCAA tournament, but quickly elevated their play to move on to the Super Regionals.

The kings of Louisiana college baseball, at least for this year, are not the six-time national champions from LSU.

While Houston was unceremoniously ending LSU’s spring with a 12-2 rout Monday at the Baton Rouge Regional, Louisiana-Lafayette managed to keep alive the best season in school history by edging Mississippi State 5-3 to advance to the NCAA super regionals. Continue reading
