McNeese holds season home opener against Arkansas Pine Bluff

Good Evening,

Lee Peck with a look at what we are working on for 7 News Nightcast.

Thousands of McNeese fans packed into Cowboy stadium as the Pokes held their home opener tonight against Arkansas Pine Bluff. But long before the roars in the stadium, the party was in full swing early this morning. KPLC's Haley Rush tailgated with the best of the Blue & Gold faithful.

Seth will also have the highlights and play by play action later in Sports.

Plus, more tonight on the high speed motorcycle pursuit that has two Fort Pork soldiers facing some serious charges.

And, a man is arrested after allegedly breaking into Buckingham Palace… even getting past gates, security sensors and cameras, as well as Palace guards.

Also in Healthcast, E-cigarettes vs. the nicotine patch. Which works better to help smokers kick the habit?

And the rains held off for the big game. Meteorologist Cedric Haynes will tell you what we can expect for the rest of our weekend and a look into the upcoming work week.

We'll see you tonight at ten. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
