The college football season ended last week with Clemson winning the National Championship over Alabama.  But it's never to early to start talking about 2019!

For the McNeese Cowboys they are doing just that.  Yesterday, the pokes released their 2019 football schedule for home and away games.

The 2019 season will begin with a new man at the helm as well as former head coach Lance Guidry was let go and Sterlin Gilbert was hired as the new head coach.
