San Diego State, Louisiana-Lafayette, 2011 New Orleans Bowl: Aztecs Were Unsure Of Where They Would End Up

The San Diego State Aztecs weren't sure if they'd make a bowl game, but they'll travel to New Orleans to take on Louisiana-Lafayette.

The San Diego State Aztecs will meat the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns in the 2011 New Orleans Bowl in New Orleans, LA. The Cajuns will be hosting their first ever bowl game in their own backyard. On the other hand, the Aztecs will be making a cross country trip to the bowl game. For a while however, the Aztecs weren't sure which bowl game they would wind up in.

"We almost laughed when (head coach Rocky Long) told us they didn't know," SDSU quarterback Ryan Lindley said. "It was a little worrisome too." The Aztecs were passed over on all of the Mountain West bowl tie ins and they weren't even sure they would make a bowl game. Even though they'll be in the Cajun's back yard, it's better than no bowl game. "We just hope we get a following," Lindley said. "We know we're kind of going to be the away team there."
