LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana-Lafayette football program has determined it must vacate 22 victories between 2011 and 2014, including two bowl victories, in order to comply with a recent NCAA ruling regarding recruiting violations by a former assistant coach.

The NCAA ruled in January that it largely accepted Louisiana-Lafayette’s self-imposed sanctions stemming from an investigation into ex-linebackers coach David Saunders’ effort to arrange fraudulent college entrance exam scores for certain recruits.

At the time of the ruling, ULL announced it would vacate all 2011 wins but still had to see which games between 2012 and 2014 involved ineligible players. The vacated games include New Orleans Bowl victories in 2011 and 2013. The Ragin’ Cajuns also have relinquished the 2013 Sun Belt Conference title.

Eligible players’ statistics from vacated games still stand.
