LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - There's two days left before the McNeese State Cowboys take on Tulane in New Orleans.  Cowboy fans have been crazy for game day tickets.

"Ticket sales were going great since day one basically and fans were already pumped up just waiting to get their tickets," said Peter Colon.

More than three thousand tickets have already been sold for the game this Saturday.  A lot of cowboy have lined up to buy their tickets, but don't worry there's still a lot left.

"Three thousand is good and I'm excited that they are going to be there, but I expect a little bit more cowboy fans support out there and I want to see even more get out there," said Gregory Viator.

But more are planning to go to the game; the ticket office expects many fans to buy last minute.

"We are expecting about seven thousand five hundred fans and over to be there supporting us," said Colon.

This will be the first time the Cowboy and the Green Wave take the field.  A superdome showdown fans can't wait to see.

"Very excited and I'm ready to get there.  I'm pumped, ready to see the game and see them kick butt," said Denissa Brown.

"Oh I can't wait. I'm super pumped," said Cristen Myers

"I'm excited. Can't wait to get out there and cheer on my McNeese cowboys," said Marcus Hardy.

The Cowboys are undefeated and have the momentum. Fans are confident win number four will come back to Lake Charles.

"I think Appalachian State was a statement and Savannah State was an exclamation point. McNeese is ready, ready to roll," said Viator.

The money from every ticket the university sells stays in Lake Charles. The more tickets sold, the better it helps the McNeese State Cowboy Athletic Program.
