It’s bowl season in college football and Tulane and Louisiana Lafayette will clash in the 2013 New Orleans Bowl to be play on December 21st at 9 PM ET, at Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Ragin’ Cajuns ended with an 8-4 record this season, but they failed to win their last two outings.

“I am not going to let this ruin the entire season,” coach Mark Hudspeth told the team’s official website. “We are the Sun Belt Conference champions. Even though we finished tied, we beat the team head-to-head that we finished tied with, and we won eight games in a row. We won a conference title in just our third year together, and we are going to our third straight bowl. The negative people can get off the train, and the positive ones can join me in New Orleans because we’re going back to a bowl.”

Tulane also closed the years with problems as they lost three of their last four games; their biggest issue was moving the ball.

“Our team was not healthy offensively,” Tulane coach Curtis Johnson said. “We took a beating the last couple of weeks. Our quarterback wasn’t very healthy since early on in the season. … I think we just need to get healthy and back up and work on some fundamental stuff. I thought our fundamentals were slipping with the offensive line and the receivers. I think that will help us a lot.”

The college football odds for the New Orleans Bowl have Tulane as 2.5 point favorites over Louisiana Lafayette.
