The 2017 college football season is coming to an end soon and for the McNeese Cowboys football team we would say 2017 was a great success.  The Pokes finished the year at 9-2 but was edged out of a playoff spot by the committee ending their season.

But there is always next year and we all are looking forward to that for sure. In Southwest Louisiana we take our McNeese football seriously!

So pokes fans get excited because McNeese has already released the 2018 football schedule.  The season will start off on Saturday, September 1st, 2018 at Northern Colorado.

The Cowboys will have six road games in 2018 and five home games.  All the home games next season will be Southland Conference games.

The pokes will take on a pretty big name when they face BYU out of the FBS on September 22nd, 2018.
