#9 McNeese upsets #2 Sam Houston State 31-23

McNeese was predicted in the preseason to finish third in the Southland. The two teams ahead of them? Central Arkansas and Sam Houston State.

Now McNeese has a victory over both, with the latest Saturday night when the #9 Cowboys upset the #2 Bearkats 31-23. 

The biggest story of the night was the Pokes "Defense With an Attitude" living up to its name, allowing only six points in the first half and no touchdowns until the 4th quarter. The defense also held two-time Southland Player of the Year, running back Tim Flanders, to 22 yards. McNeese running back Marcus Wiltz outperformed Flanders, with a 125 yards and one TD performance.

The Cowboys will next travel to Nicholls Saturday, Oct. 26, for a 3 p.m. kickoff.
