    Babineaux, Owens relish induction into Hall of Fame

    UL The setting was perfect.

    Former University of Louisiana lineman Baron Babineaux was standing at midfield, looking up at a homecoming crowd of 23,121 fans and waving as he was introduced with four other new members of the school's 'S' Club Hall of Fame.

    Babineaux was an All-Gulf States Conference selection in 1968 and 1969, finished at UL in 1971 and still lives in New Iberia with his wife, the former Karen Viator, who was homecoming queen here in 1969 when the Cajuns played at McNaspy Stadium.

    "She's still my queen," Babineaux said on Saturday. "We've been married 27 years."

    Babineaux was on UL teams that beat Terry Bradsaw and Louisiana Tech as well as Roger Staubach and Pensacola Navy in 1968. He also faced other future NFL stars.
