With a lack of consistency In New Orleans, at LSU and McNeese; there has been little to cheer about during this year's football season. The same thing can not be said across the Sabine River where the Cardinals have had a great season and last night capped it off with a road victory over our Cowboys in Lake Charles.
The McNeese Cowboys have one more regular season football game left. The Pokes travel to Beaumont Saturday to take on the Lamar Cardinals. It should be an easy win for the Cowboys and set the team up for a home p[layoff game. tickets for that playoff game can be reserved now.
You have to love a weekend when all of our teams win. A win by the Tigers, Cowboys and Saints is the best way to start any week. Then add to that a day off at Thanksgiving and the week looks even better.
It has been a frustrating year for the Pokes. They were close in all but one of their losses. There is one game left and it could make us feel a little better because it is against arch rival Lamar! We have free tickets!
McNeese is 6-4 on the season and 3-3 in the Southland Conference...
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.
