It's that time again folks, Football season!  The college football season is underway and for the McNeese Cowboys their 2017 season begins tonight on the road against Nicholls.

The Cowboys in 2016 were 6-5 on the season but good news, the pokes have 16 returning starters coming back.  Eight on offense and eight on defense.

Junior quarterback James Tabary gets the nod for the Cowboys to run the offense.  Last year Tabary was 33 yards shy of breaking the single season school record for passing. Sophomore running back Justin Pratt will get the start in the backfield for the pokes.

The Cowboys hit the road tonight and heads to Thibodaux Louisiana tonight and will take on Nicholls.  The game kicks off at 7:05 p.m. and will air on ESPN3.
