I know it's only March but it is never to early to start thinking about football season.  That is what the McNeese Cowboys football team will do today holding their first scrimmage of the spring.

McNeese State will have their first scrimmage of spring football practice today at 3 in Cowboy Stadium and it will also be open to the public and free of charge to attend Cowboy fans!

The Cowboys are expected to go through a 100-play scrimmage with special teams built in.

After today's scrimmage, the Cowboys will take this next week off for spring break but will return on April 2 and will have their second scrimmage at 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 6.

The annual Blue-Gold spring game will take place at 1 p.m. on April 13.
