Cajun fans broke a Sun Belt record for attendance at Saturday's homecoming game, and now they'll have an opportunity to see the historic game, the 1,000th in the program's history, again on Cox Sports Television, Cox4 and OnDemand. So if you weren't one of the 29,031 fans who got to see running back Tyrell Fenroy become the 7th player in NCAA history to amass four straight 1,000 yard seasons (the game was halted for a quick ceremony to recognize the accomplishment), now's your chance.
The cable provider, which carried the game against Florida International live on Cox Channel 4, will replay the victory tomorrow at noon on CST - Cox Channel 37 or Cox HD Channel 737.

Also beginning Wednesday, Cox's digital subscribers will receive the game free of charge, whenever they want to view it, through OnDemand (Cox channels 1 and 499). To access the game, customers must select the Cox Zone category and then Cox4.
