Get your MSU tickets

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A steady stream of cowboy fans are lining up for one thing.

"I am buying tickets to the playoff game. I am ready to baby," said one Cowboy fan.

At some points the line ran out the door and down the street. That was not the case two years ago, when McNeese played Eastern Washington in the first and only round of the playoffs that season.

"It was disappointing, it really was. It had rained all day. It was really cold. That had a lot to do with the crowd," said MSU Assistant Athletic Director, Ryan Ivey.

The weather is expected to be great for Saturday's game. But, unlike in 2007, McNeese is expecting a good fan base for the first playoff game of the season.

"So far we have had a great response, as far as our tickets. We are expecting to have a great crowd. It is a great match up," said Ryan Ivey.

"We are seeing much more foot traffic this year. I think the weather has a lot to do with it, as well as just the general excitement. Our team is playing well," said MSU Athletic Director, Tommy McClelland.

If you want tickets, the field ticket box office is open from 8am-5:30pm. If you aren't able to make it out, you can call the ticket office, or tickets are available for purchase online.

"I can tell you that our call volume is very high right now. Coming by is probably the best option. To be sure, the best way is to come in, make a transaction, and walk out with a ticket," said Tommy McClelland.

"Go ahead, do it now, get it over with so you don't have to mess with it Saturday," said one Cowboy fan.

The game kicks off at 2pm in Cowboy stadium, hopefully this year with more fans in the stands.

We asked McNeese why they are playing at 2pm. They said if they win, it would give them more time to begin reviewing tapes and getting ready for the next game. 

If you would like to pay for your tickets online, log on to McNeese Sports. Tickets for reserved seating is twenty dollars. It is fifteen dollars for an adult general admission ticket, and six dollars for a child. Students will get in for five dollars with a valid student ID.
