This week's media notes:
The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns® is the nickname of the University's athletic teams. We politely ask that you refer to our athletic programs as simply "Louisiana" on rst reference, or use the any of the following: Ragin' Cajuns or Cajuns.
For all electronic sports tickers and TV crawls only (e ective Nov. 1, 2016), please use "LA" as the o cial abbreviation for all athletic programs.
The Sun Belt Conference has made public its University Reference Guide that is used to reference each member institution's athletic title and nicknames. The publication of the guide comes after all of the conference's presidents and chancellors submitted their pre- ferred reference.
The Sun Belt Conference will begin to use these references immediately. Sun Belt mem- ber institutions and media partners are encouraged to use these references so that there is consistency across all communication platforms.
