Northwestern State Demons (4-7)


Northwestern State looking toward Laird's first season

(STATS) - Northwestern State will visit Texas A&M in new coach Brad Laird's first game and play five times at home as part of an 11-game 2018 schedule.

The Demons will kick off the season at College Station on Sept. 1.

Their schedule at Turpin Stadium is particularly attractive as they host SWAC champion Grambling State (Sept. 8) out of conference and then Southland Conference foes Nicholls (Oct. 6), Sam Houston State (Oct. 13), Houston Baptist (Oct. 27) and McNeese (Nov. 10).
