By McNeese SID Matthew Bonnette


LAKE CHARLES – Just over three weeks remain until the McNeese Cowboys report for August camp and with the excitement of football season beginning to fill the air, the Southland Conference has announced its 2014 football broadcast schedule, one that features the Cowboys in three contests on the season.

McNeese (10-3 in 2013) will be featured as the Southland Conference Television Network Game of the Week on October 11 at Sam Houston State and on November 15 at Southeastern Louisiana.  Both of those games will kick-off at 3 p.m.

The Cowboys’ Oct. 18 Homecoming game against Abilene Christian will air exclusively on ESPN3 at 6 p.m. while the Sept. 6 season opener at Nebraska will also be televised but a network has not yet been announced.

“We look forward to another great season of Southland football on the award-winning regional network and ESPN3,” Southland Commissioner Tom Burnett said.  “With the growth in affiliate coverage, Southland football is a proven television commodity, and we are excited to continue tell the great stories of competitive excellence and academic achievement within the league.”

The Southland Conference TV Network can be seen in Lake Charles on the CW (channel 7 on Suddenlink, 29.2 OTA, and on DirecTV 30).
