LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - After coming in at number 26 in last week's Sports Network/Fathead.com poll, the McNeese Cowboys again were unable to crack the top 25 in this week's poll, despite their 24-7 win over Northwestern State.
In fact, the Pokes dropped a few spots to 28th. Stephen F. Austin, McNeese's opponent this Saturday, led the way in the Southland Conference, ranked 5th.
Texas State was ranked 17th and Central Arkansas was 27th.
The Pokes will kick-off against the Lumberjacks this Saturday at 7:00 in their SLC home opener in Cowboy Stadium.
