Sam Houston gears up for game against McNeese State

The Bearkats finally make a trip back home when they host McNeese State for Homecoming. It is the first game at Bowers Stadium since Aug. 28 against East Central Oklahoma.

This will be the 75th homecoming for SHSU and the sixth time we will face off with the Cowboys on Homecoming. In those previous five we have won one and lost four.

The Kats are 14-8 on homecoming games at Bowers Stadium with an overall record of 34-40-1 on homecoming.

They will also be on TV for the second week in a row, but we only hope that it goes our way this time. And a little defense wouldn’t hurt either, but to their defense they played against one of the top quarterbacks in the nation.

McNeese will be no easy opponent to take on for Homecoming as they are ranked 12th in the polls and hold a 3-2 record. The Cowboys also own a 21-7-1 all-time record against SHSU.

Rhett Bomar will look to add on to his impressive season so far when he has an opportunity to pass the Carolina Panthers’ and former standout SHSU quarterback, Josh McCown, for ninth place on the all-time passing yards for a career. He also has the chance to become only the eighth SHSU quarterback to have 4,000 yards of total offense.

So come out and support your Kats and the alumni, who have the third best offense in the nation, for Homecoming on Saturday. Kick off is at 2 p.m. at Bowers Stadium.
