The 2018 Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns football team represented the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in the 2018 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Ragin' Cajuns played their home games at Cajun Field in Lafayette, Louisiana and competed in the West Division of the Sun Belt Conference. They were led by first-year head coach Billy Napier. They finished the season 7-7, 5-3 in Sun Belt play to finish in a tie for the West Division championship with Arkansas State. Due to their head-to-head win over Arkansas State, they represented the West Division in the inaugural Sun Belt Championship Game where they lost to East Division champion Appalachian State. They were invited to the Cure Bowl where they lost to Tulane.

Previous Season

The Ragin' Cajuns finished the 2017 season 5-7, 4-4 in Sun Belt play to finish in a three-way tie for fifth place.

On December 3, head coach Mark Hudspeth was fired.[1] He finished with a seven-year record of 51-38. However, due to NCAA sanctions in 2016 because former assistant coach David Saunders arranged fraudulent college entrance exams for recruits, his official record was 29-38.[2] On December 15, the school hired Billy Napier as head coach.[3][4]
