McNeese to hold annual Cowboy Night on Wednesday at 6:30

McNeese wrapped up its 17th practice of fall camp on Tuesday afternoon in Cowboy Stadium as it continues to work towards the Aug. 31 season opener at South Florida.

The Cowboys will hold their annual Cowboy Night event on Wednesday night beginning with team introductions at 6:20 followed by an intrasquad scrimmage at 6:30.

Wednesday's scrimmage will wrap the end of fall camp as the Cowboys begin preparations for South Florida on Friday.

"This will be and opportunity to get the team on the field, the personnel on the field and work on our communications," said head coach Matt Viator. "We plan on working on our 2-minute situations with our 1s vs. 1s and maybe a 4-minute situation. Just trying to get stuff done."

It could also be one of the last times the players lower on the depth chart to make some noise and perhaps move up.

"It kind of is that way," said Viator. "You want to get them into some situations but it's not like it's obviously a game-game, but you want to try to get them in situations and see who's going to follow script so to speak. And not only that but who can actually make plays and who will get out here and show a little game."

McNeese game at South Florida carries a 6 p.m. kickoff and will be broadcast live on ESPN3. The Cowboys will open at home on Sept. 7 against Arkansas-Pine Bluff with a special 7:30 kickoff due to the contest being televised on Comcast SportsNet Houston.
