The McNeese Cowboys football team returns back to Lake Charles for a big game with the Sam Houston Bearcats this Saturday night.

This is the first time Sam Houston had played the Cowboys in Lake Charles since 2015.

The game will also feature the Hall Of Fame weekend where former McNeese standout athletes will be enshrined into the McNeese sports Hall of Fame.

Five former McNeese standouts have been selected to the McNeese Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2019 – football’s Ronald Cherry and Chris Fontenot, track’s Samantha Chesson and Tom McGrath, and baseball’s Bill Simon.
