Louisiana-Lafayette head coach Mark Hudspeth "will emerge as one of the hottest commodities in college coaching" this season, writes FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman.

"And it'll have nothing to do with the fact that he can bench press more than like 95 percent of his players," Feldman deadpanned. "Well, almost nothing. The 45-year-old Hudspeth, 99-33 all-time as a head coach, has 18 returning starters and has a good shot to knock off Ole Miss or Boise State even though both games are on the road." ULL athletics director Scott Farmer gave Hudspeth a six-year contract extension in June after three straight 9-4 seasons that all culminated with bowl victories.

Louisiana-Lafayette signed head coach Mark Hudspeth to a six-year extension.

ULL athletics director Scott Farmer announced Hudspeth's deal on Friday. The pact features a base salary of $950,000, plus incentives, a just reward for three straight 9-4 seasons that all culminated with bowl victories. The contract "is a show of faith between the university and Coach Hudspeth in that both sides agree the football program is headed in the right direction," said Farmer.

Louisiana-Lafayette junior QB Terrance Broadway completed 8-of-13 attempts for 185 passing yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Thursday's 41-36 victory over Troy.

Broadway added 63 rushing yards and two touchdowns. The Ragin' Cajuns were outgained by nearly 100 yards and turned the ball over two more times than the Trojans (2-0), but they held on for their seventh consecutive victory. ULL improves to 7-2, including 4-0 in the Sun Belt.

Louisiana-Lafayette junior QB Terrance Broadway completed 18-of-28 attempts for 205 passing yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Tuesday's 23-7 victory over Arkansas State.

Arkansas State hung 50 on the Ragin' Cajuns in 2012's blowout win, so Broadway and company enjoyed sweet revenge on their opponent's home field this evening. Both Elijah McGuire and Alonzo Harris rushed for more than 100 yards, and Broadway added 28 yards on the ground. Broadway struggled in ULL's season-opening blowout losses against BCS opponents Arkansas and Kansas State. His efficiency has improved overall -- despite his ho-hum air display against the Red Wolves -- as has the Cajuns' postseason odds during their current five-game winning streak. ULL leads the Sun Belt with a 3-0 record.

ULL sophomore RB Alonzo Harris rushed for 120 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries Saturday against ECU.

Harris had an up and down season from a production standpoint, failing to generate consistent performances. Still, as only a sophomore with a large body for the position, Harris has a few more years to prove his NFL value. This kind of stat line certainly won't hurt.

Louisiana-Lafayette will meet ECU in the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl on December 22.

This contest lacks NFL caliber talent but ULL cornerback Melvin White could top the list along with defensive tackle Cordian Hagans. For ECU, junior linebacker Derrell Johnson could create some pressure off the edge.

Blaine Gautier threw for a New Orleans Bowl record 470 yards in La.-Lafayette’s 32-30 win over San Diego State in the New Orleans Bowl.

Gautier completed 24-of-40 with 3 TDs. The junior's big bowl game enabled him to finish the season with school records for passing yards (2,958) and touchdown passes (23), breaking the single-season marks held by Jake Delhomme.

La.-Lafayette receiver Javone Lawson established career-highs with 9 receptions, 193 yards and 2 TDs in a 32-30 win over San Diego State in the New Orleans.

Lawson topped 100 yards five times in the last eight games and his effort against the Aztecs put him over 1,000 for the season. Lawson caught and 18-yard TD pass in the opening quarter and an 11-yarder in the fourth quarter.

LA-Lafayette's Blaine Gauthier threw for 355 yards and 4 TDs in a 36-35 win over visiting LA-Monroe.

Gauthier has been one of the nation's better secrets this season. In the last four games, he has thrown for more than 1,100 yards and 11/1. On the season, the junior is an exceptional 17/2 in 230 attempts.

Louisiana-Lafayette quarterback Chris Masson took the field against rival Louisiana-Monroe after having missed the last three games due to injury.  Masson finished the game with 330 yards passing, two touchdowns, and a pick.

Blaine Gautier had been playing pretty well but didn't get meaningful snaps against the Warhawks.  Next year, this will be a quarterback battle to keep an eye on.

Louisiana-Lafayette quarterback Chris Masson has been upgraded from doubtful to probable for the game against Florida International.  Masson has been out with a knee injury.

With the play of Blaine Gautier being as good as it is, do not expect Masson to see the field against the Golden Panthers.

Louisiana-Lafayette quarterback Brad McGuire will miss the rest of the season as he undergoes surgery on a torn ligament in his throwing hand.  This will leave the Cajuns with their third string quarterback to start against Florida Atlantic this weekend.

McGuire would have been a good start against the Owls but now you must look elsewhere for a quarterback.

Louisiana-Lafayette quarterback Chris Masson left the game against Ohio with a knee injury but backup Brad McGuire came in and never looked back.  McGuire finished the game on 25-of-39 passing for 384 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception while also rushing for 33 yards.

If Masson is out, the Cajuns have a more than capable backup in McGuire.  From a fantasy perspective, McGuire is only worth a look in deep leagues.

Louisiana-Lafayette quarterback Chris Masson threw for 308 yards and two scores in the loss to Oklahoma State.

Masson now has two consecutive 300-yard games, making him worthy of Sunday morning waiver wire consideration.

Louisiana-Lafayette quarterback Chris Masson lead the Ragin' Cajuns to a close win over North Texas on 16-of-30 passing for 314 yards and two touchdowns.

Masson is a decent passer but will not put up these types of numbers very often.
