For the third season in a row, the Ragin’ Cajuns offensive line has been recognized as one of the best units in the country halfway through the season. The line on Tuesday was announced as the Joe Moore Award Midseason Honor Roll.
UL is one of 19 teams featured on the list and one of three out of the Sun Belt Conference, joining both App St and Coastal Carolina.
Shane Vallot, Ken Marks, O’Cyrus Torrence, and Max Mitchell are all mainstays up front this season, as they each have started in all six games for the Cajuns. Redshirt Freshman AJ Gillie has been big for the team with four starts of his own.
The offensive line unit ranks third in the Sun Belt and 28th in the nation in sacks allowed (1.5) and fourth in the Sun Belt in tackles-for-loss allowed (5.67), and is ranked 47th in the nation in rushing offense.
