Today is the day that has become notorious for shopping in a frenzied fashion. Many major retailers have been offering special deals to customers since the wee small hours of this morning. Some of those retailers started earlier than that by offering deals and opening their stores yesterday afternoon.  In the spirit of Black Friday Ragin Cajun Athletics is offering fans a significant savings on tickets but you've got to act fast.

Tickets for the Ragin' Cajuns final home game Saturday December 5th against Troy can be purchased for half price today. Let's call it a Vermilion Friday deal for Cajun fans. If you's like to take advantage of this special 50% off price here's what you need to do. Purchase your tickets today at the Cajundome box office between the hours of 10 AM and 4 PM.

This half price deal is for today only between the specified hours and only good at the Cajundome Box office. If you're looking for another great ticket and meal deal we suggest the Ragin' Cajuns Family Fun Pack from McDonald's. For just $50 you can get four tickets to the game and four McDonald's Extra Value Meals. Here's the caveat. You have to ask for this deal at the Cajundome Box Office or at the Box Office on Game Day.

The Cajuns are on the road this weekend as they travel to Boone North Carolina for a game with Appalachian State.  That game has a kick off scheduled for 1pm and can be heard on ESPN 1420, Hot 1079, and by using the Radio Pup App for smartphones.

The pregame show begins at the Mellow Mushroom on Johnston Street at 11 AM. You can join the show and get your questions answered by Steve Peloquin and Coach Gerald Broussard during the broadcast.
