The Southland Conference championship is on the line as both teams enter the contest with 8-2 season records and are nationally ranked. No. 14 Southeastern Louisiana is in first place with a perfect 5-0 league mark. No. 4 Sam Houston and No. 9 McNeese are tied for second place with 4-1 marks.
The Lions are riding a seven-game win streak entering the game, but have lost the last three games to Sam Houston State.
Southeastern can win its first Southland Conference title and clinch its first trip to the FCS Playoffs with a win. The Bearkats can keep their hopes alive for a conference three-peat with a victory.
Should all three teams finish the year with 6-1 league records, they would be co-champions. Since the tie would be unbreakable by the league’s traditional tiebreakers, league rules read that the team that has been absent from the playoffs for the longest period of time would be designated as the league’s automatic qualifier.
Southeastern would be that team since it has never advanced to the FCS Playoffs, while Sam Houston State has reached the championship game each of the last two seasons and McNeese State has made 14 playoff appearances with its last in 2009.
Randy McIlvoy and Shea Walker will call the action from the booth. Erin Cofiell will be the sideline reporter.
The eight-game network schedule will be featured on more than 20 affiliates across Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas and will be available on the Southland Conference Digital Network and ESPN3.
