The McNeese Cowboys football team reported to fall camp yesterday to gear up for the 2015 season.  The freshman and new comers to the team had to report to camp at 8:30 a.m. while the veterans or seniors reported yesterday at 4:00 p.m.

Also yesterday, the preseason FCS coaches poll was released and the Cowboys found themselves ranked 23rd in the poll.  Remember that the Cowboys ended the 2014 season with a record of 6-5 last season and they also lost their final three games.  This would probably explain why they are so far down in the preseason poll.

Here is the actual poll released yesterday:
