The Ragin’ Cajuns returned to action Saturday, and though the season opener vs. Mississippi State didn’t go UL’s way, plenty of college football fans enjoyed the return of the “Touchdown Cane” to the Cajuns’ sideline.
The Cajuns, who hung with Mississippi State for four quarters before falling 38-28, definitely had some moments to celebrate, with four touchdowns scored against the SEC school.
The “Touchdown Cane” was around last season, too. Assistant strength coach Tiger Jones carries it on the sideline, and whoever scores a touchdown gets to dance with it.
The concept is nothing new. Defenses especially are often seen using a turnover chain or something similar. But maybe the cane is catching on, as Morehead State showed off its “Turnover Cane” on Friday.
Regardless of how far the fad goes, Cajuns fans are hoping to see a lot more of the “Touchdown Cane” this season.
