The McNeese Cowboys football team have received enough votes to land in the top 25 in one of the FCS National college football polls.

After losing their first game to Nichols in a heart breaker, the Pokes have rattled off three straight wins, and sit at 3-1 on the season.

The Cowboys are now nationally ranked at #25 in the FCS coaches poll.  The Pokes will not come back to Lake Charles for another home game until October 21st, which will also be Homecoming for the blue and gold.

The Cowboys will be on the road over the next month, and enjoying a bye week before returning to Lake Charles on October 21st.  First up is a game at Stephen F Austin this Saturday night.  The game starts at 6:00 p.m. and will be televised on ESPN3.
