A Nicholl for your thoughts

Posted: Updated:
NATCHITOCHES, La. -

Northwestern State opens conference play this week at Nicholls State where Demons head coach Jay Thomas coached for 14 years, six as head coach.  The Demons may be 3-2, but for them the season really begins this week.  The goal is to win the Southland Conference and earn one of the automatic bids to the FCS playoffs.

Thomas knows this rivalry well, having been on the other side of it so long, but he makes it very clear he is happy to be in Natchitoches and happy to wear purple.  This series is one which can be unpredictable and last year is a perfect example.  NSU only won four games all season, but this was one of them, 27-26, with the difference being a missed extra point.

After Saturday's game in Thibodaux the Demons will return home to play Southeastern Louisiana Saturday, October 19.
