Look to snap a 2 game losing streak against second-ranked Sam Houston State (5-1, 1-0) visits Cowboy Stadium tonight.

It is McNeese’s second game against a top-five opponent in the last three. The last one was a 41-6 loss on Sept. 28 at Northern Iowa that left plenty skeptical about whether the Cowboys live up to their own top-10 billing. In addition to being homecoming, it is the first trip to Cowboy Stadium by a top-five team since No. 1 Georgia Southern visited in 2003.

Sam Houston ranks second in the nation in scoring with an average of 45.3 points per game, while McNeese is third with 43.8 points per game.

For both teams, the third quarter could prove to be the decisive frame. McNeese wants to avoid giving an offense averaging more than 300 rushing yards a game the chance to salt away the clock. The Bearkats may be thinking the same thing about McNeese. Catch the game on Gator 99.5, gator995.com, or on your smart phone with your free radio pup app.... and Geaux Pokes!!
