UL-Southern tickets still available

by Nathan Stubbs

UL is anticipating a packed house at Cajun Field for its home football opener against the Southern University Jaguars. The new inter-state rivalry, which offers a chance to catch Southern's famed "Human Juke Box" marching band, kicks off at 6 p.m. tomorrow. Southern has sold out its 6,000 allotted tickets for the game and has also rented out the entire Cajun dome parking lot for its fans.

UL Sports Information Director Daryl Cetnar says ticket sales have been steady, but there are still plenty available. Fans can order tickets through any Ticketmaster outlet, online or by phone. The Cajun dome box office will be selling tickets today until 4 p.m. And tomorrow, UL is opening up all its ticket box offices early, at 10 a.m., for game day sales.
