The McNeese Cowboys football team are looking to get back on the winning ways when the host Sam Houston Saturday night for homecoming.

The task won't be easy though because Sam Houston is in first place in the Southland Conference.  It would be a huge win and a big confidence boost for the Cowboys but they will need all the support from you the Cowboy fans!

McNeese State celebrates its 68th Homecoming on Saturday, hosting undefeated Sam Houston State in a key Southland Conference football game.

Kickoff is 7 p.m. in Cowboy Stadium and upwards of 15,000 fans are expected for the game.

The Cowboys, ranked No. 24 nationally, are 3-3 on the season and 2-1 in league play while the Bearkats, No. 7 on the national scene, stand 6-0 overall and are 3-0 in the SLC.

Having dropped its last two games, McNeese is in need of a win, which will kept the Cowboys in the race for the league title as well as in the running for a post season playoff berth.
