Southern hospitality

NATCHITOCHES, La. -

Northwestern State plays its home opener Saturday night against Southern University.  The Demons broke a seven game road losing streak which dated back to 2011 last week at Missouri State and now hope to take that winning momentum in to the game against the Jaguars.

Demon defensive end Keland Johnson, who grew up near Jackson, Mississippi says he knows of Southern because of its band.  Johnson says when Southern came to play Jackson State he would watch the band, but doesn't remember much about their football team.

Southern has a rich tradition, but has fallen on hard times of late.  If the Demons can get another win they would open 2-0 for the first time since 2007.
