Boise State starts the season on the road to take on Louisiana-Lafayette, or is it just Louisiana now I am not sure. Lets stick with the Ragin’ Cajuns is who the Broncos will play on Saturday.

The Broncos are heavily favored in this game and are given an 88.1 percent chance to win this game. ULL The Ragin’ Cajuns struggled last year and were just 4-8 and things are not expected to be all that much better.

OBNUG.com put together a list of 10 things to know about Louisiana-Lafayette, and here are just a few.

6) Lafayette jumped right into the football fire just a year after their founding and played their first "season" in 1902—a 3 game slate that saw them play LSU, Lake Charles High School, and New Orleans AC (due to humidity...that AC probably set to "high"). Lafayette went 1-2, with their sole win coming against Lake Charles High, and were shut out in the other two contests. Not exactly the start of a football dynasty...but in 1902, people were just happy if they didn't develop trench foot after a game.

8) Now'd probably be a good time to explain just why the name "Lafayette" was so popular amongst namers of parishes, suburbs, and such. The name "Lafayette" actually belonged to a French (gasp) general—one Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette a key figure in the American Revolution and personal homeboy of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and noted rapper Alexander Hamilton.
