The story of Louisiana’s season is  quite simple: Did Andre Nunez have a productive game? Part of the good news is he guided the Ragin’ Cajuns to the Sun Belt Championship Game. But there’s some bad news, too. While the number itself is arbitrary, Louisiana posted a 7-1 record when Nunez threw for at least 140 yards but went 0-5 otherwise. Cresting the mark doesn’t guarantee a win over Tulane in the Cure Bowl, yet it’s a clear indication of how Nunez is the key to a Louisiana victory. Proper management of this two-QB system is critical.
