Overview: Nicholls has never been exactly known as a Football power, but they are certainly respectable as a program. They have had 5 straight winning seasons to go along with 2 Southland titles and three FCS playoff berths from 2017-2019. Heading down to Cajun Bayou Country, this will be a tough game. It will be the final road trip of the season, and just about all of them are in Louisiana.

At this point in the season, it will all about finishing strong, and hopefully, first in the Southland. Let me repeat this, WE CAN WIN THIS CONFERENCE IN OUR FIRST YEAR. However, it will take big time breaks and play to make that happen. Nicholls might be a strong team yet again, or they could be middle of the pack. We don’t know yet but by the point that we reach Nicholls we will see what kind of team we are. This game could also be a game that decides how we finish in the conference and overall how successful our first year in Division I will be.

Like every game on the schedule, this is one that we cannot overlook. We have to go down to Bayou country, take on a team that is in contention for the SLC title every year, and gut it out. Games like these are the ones that will show us what we are made of.
