McNeese State 40, Tarleton State 37 (2OT)



STEPHENVILLE, Texas – Hollywood doesn’t have a scriptwriter for what the McNeese Cowboys have endured the past six months while hitting its high point so far on Saturday night.

McNeese Football is writing it for them.

Cody Orgeron sprinted from 19 yards out in double-overtime to give McNeese a 40-37 win over Tarleton State in the first college football game in a spring season since the 1890s.
