Northwestern Announces Fall Football Schedule


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. 

The slate begins and ends with Thursday night contests: Aug. 29, at Tennessee-Martin of the FCS Ohio Valley Conference with the Skyhawks returning the game in 2021, and Nov. 21 when the Demons’ oldest active rivalry is renewed as Stephen F. Austin comes in for the regular-season finale. 

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.
