The San Diego St. Aztecs are heading to New Orleans, La. to take on the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns from the Sun Belt Conference. This is the first-ever bowl bid for the Ragin Cajuns who finished 8-4 and third from the Sun Belt Conference. Typically the Sun Belt champion goes to this bowl game, but the SBC actually has multiple bowl tie-ins and their champion now goes to the GoDaddy.com Bowl.
The best win on the schedule for Ragin Cajuns is probably their 36-31 win over Florida International, so nothing to special on their resume. A reason San Diego State falls here is because the New Mexico Bowl picked the Wyoming Cowboys instead of San Diego State and the Independence Bowl was able to not select a Mountain West team.
San Diego State fans can be happy about the destination because New Orleans offers a lot more than Albuquerque.
This game kicks off on Saturday Dec. 17 at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.
