Northwestern State University Football Coach Brad Laird, talked to the Natchitoches Lions Club on Aug. 12 about the upcoming season, and how being prepared off the field, prepares you for play on the field.
Northwestern State’s 12-game 2019 football schedule includes a Sept. 14 visit to Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge to meet LSU, coached by former Demon player Ed Orgeron, and brings four Texas opponents to Turpin Stadium along with old in-state rival Southeastern Louisiana.
NSU’s home opener is Sept. 7 against Division II powerhouse Midwestern State, which has 19 straight winning seasons and four national playoff appearances in the past five years.
The Demons host four Southland Conference contests, beginning Sept. 28 against Southeastern. NSU’s homecoming foe is Central Arkansas on Oct. 19, with 2018 FCS playoff entry Lamar visiting Turpin Stadium on Nov. 9 in a rematch of a 49-48 Demon win last year. The NSU-SFA matchup, the annual “Battle for Chief Caddo,” the largest trophy in sports, will be played on a Thursday for the second straight year, with NSU aiming for a third consecutive victory in a series dating back to 1924.
Season tickets for the 2019 campaign’s five home games are available through the NSUDemons.com website.
