The McNeese Cowboys football can do something tonight that haven't done in since 2009 which is win the Southland Conference championship! What is even better is and the icing on the cake will be the pokes will also get an automatic berth into FCS playoffs.
The McNeese Women's softball team lost their opening round game yesterday in the 2015 Southland Conference Tournament to third seeded Central Arkansas when the lady bears surprised the Cowgirls beating them 6-2. The cowgirls will need to rebound from yesterdays loss and win today at 1:30 or they will head home.
Texas A&M were set to welcome the McNeese Cowboys for their home opener on Aug. 30, but word broke Wednesday that the Aggies have broken that contract to play Louisiana Tech instead. The move has left McNeese scrambling to fill the hole in their schedule and could put the Cowboys facing off against a conference rival twice in the same season.
