The McNeese Cowboys football team are off to a great start in the 2018 football season as they have won their first two games of the year.

The Cowboys are coming off of a big Southland Conference win over Houston Baptist where they won 51-34.

Even though the pokes are 2-0 on the season and they had a convincing win last Saturday, the poll voters didn't show the pokes any love.

In the latest polls, McNeese stayed at #16 in the latest STATS media poll but fell one spot to #15 in the AFCA Coaches poll.

The Pokes are getting ready to host their first home game this Saturday when Nicholls State comes to Lake Charles.  The game is set to kickoff at 6pm at Cowboys stadium.
