Lamar will hit the road to face Northwestern State

BEAUMONT — After opening its Southland Conference football season with a home loss to Southeastern Louisiana last Saturday, Lamar University will look to even its league record when the Cardinals travel to Turpin Stadium to take on Northwestern State. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m.

The Demons, who opened conference action with a 30-22 loss at No. 18 McNeese State last Saturday, are also looking to get back to the .500 mark with a victory. Both teams carry identical 2-3 overall records into Saturday evening’s contest. 

"They're a team that's going to be tough to beat,” said LU head coach Ray Woodard. “They're kind of in the same boat we are. They're coming off a disappointing loss like us. They don't want to go two down, we don't want to go two down, so it's going to be two teams that really want to get back on track and stay in the middle of this thing (the Southland race)."

Saturday’s game will be televised on tape delay by Fox 4 in the Beaumont area at 9:30 p.m. The contest between the Cardinals and Demons will also be streamed on ESPN3 for live viewing and, as always, can be heard live on KLVI 560 AM with Harold Mann providing the play-by-play and former LU linebacker Bo Brown serving as analyst.

This will be the 15th meeting between the two schools as four-year institutions with the Cardinals holding a slim 7-6-1 advantage. NSU has won three of the last four meetings, however, including a 37-17 win last season in Beaumont. 

Last year’s matchup featured 903 yards of combined offense with 650 yards coming through the air. Former Lamar wide receiver J.J. Hayes set a school record with 212 receiving yards. Hayes would finish with 10 catches, including a 40-yard touchdown reception, in the loss.
