  Cody Orgeron threw a pair of late fourth-quarter touchdown passes and broke loose for a 19-yard touchdown run in the second overtime, leading McNeese to a 40-37 victory over Tarleton State on Saturday night to kick off the Football Championship Subdivision spring season. Frank Wilson, the first African-American head coach at McNeese, made his Cowboys' debut while the Texans played their first game as a Division I member. A New Orleans native, Wilson was named the Cowboys’ 17th head coach on Jan. 16, 2020 after spending the previous four seasons as head coach at UTSA.

Tarleton State moved to D-I and the Western Athletic Conference in July. The Texans will compete as an independent program since the WAC dropped football in 2012. As a Division II member (1994-2019), the Texans were 5-8 against D-I opponents, including a 37-26 win at Stephen F. Austin in a 2019 season opener. Orgeron, son of LSU coach Ed Orgeron, threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Mason Pierce with 2:46 remaining to pull the Cowboys to 31-24, and tossed a 12-yard score to Trevor Begue with 35 seconds left to force overtime. Orgeron also had a 5-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter and a touchdown pass in the first. - AP College Football

  McNeese's season opening game at Tarleton State this Saturday will air live on FOX Sports Southwest Plus and FOX Sports Go, it was announced on Tuesday. The game was originally scheduled to be carried by ESPN Plus. Under the direction of first-year head coach Frank Wilson, McNeese will be playing a competitive game for the first time since Nov. 23, 2019, a span of 447 games, when it takes the field at Memorial Stadium in Stephenville against the Texans who will be making their NCAA Division I FCS debut. McNeese posted a 7-5 record in the fall of 2019, and due to COVID and two major hurricanes, the Cowboys were without any kind of workout and conditioning practices for the fall and did not return to Lake Charles as a team until November. TSU, a new member of the WAC, posted an 11-1 record in 2019, its final season in the NCAA Division II ranks. - McNeese Football

  01/20/21 - Corione HarrisJr/2022, McNeese, 6-1, 180 (DS#999 CB) + More +

  After three years playing for an FBS program at Kansas, defensive back Corione Harris plans to finish his college career at the FCS level. The former KU cornerback and safety announced Monday his decision to commit to McNeese, which plays in the Southland Conference. Harris, who signed with Kansas in 2018 as a four-star prospect from Louisiana, entered the NCAA's transfer portal in early January following a 2020 season in which he played exclusively as a reserve. Formerly a starting cornerback as a freshman and sophomore, Harris moved to safety ahead of what would become his last year in the program. An offseason suspension tied to an arrest was lifted by KU head coach Les Miles just before the season began, and Miles and the staff moved Harris to a position group where they hoped he could fill a need. Harris appeared in seven games as a backup, made 11 total tackles, and was credited with a forced fumble. - Lawrence Journal World

  09/23/20 - Corione HarrisJr/2022, McNeese, 6-1, 180 (DS#999 CB) + More +

  When Corione Harris makes his return to the Kansas football lineup - likely as soon as this Saturday at Baylor - the recently reinstated junior will do so at a new position. KU head coach Les Miles, who just before the season opener brought Harris back from an eight-month suspension, said Monday that the junior defensive back from New Orleans began practicing this past week and has moved to safety. "I think safety becomes the easier place to enter," Miles said of Harris' return, after an offseason arrest and indefinite suspension kept him away from the program until his court matters were settled in early September. "And I think we're better at corner than when Corione left," Miles said. "It's likely he'll start in there at safety and give us another coverage hand at that spot."

In the Jayhawks' season-opening loss to Coastal Carolina, senior Kyle Mayberry and freshman Karon Prunty started at cornerback, while Elijah Jones played as a reserve. Now listed at 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, Harris spent time as a starting cornerback for KU each of the previous two seasons, after arriving in Lawrence as a touted four-star prospect in the class of 2018. Harris intercepted a pass versus Rutgers in his third career game, but has not recorded another since. - Lawrence Journal World

  08/10/20 - Jamal PettigrewrSr/2022, McNeese, 6-6, 254 (DS#57 TE) + More +

  Former LSU tight end Jamal Pettigrew has signed with McNeese State, the school announced Saturday afternoon. LSU coach Ed Orgeron said Pettigrew, who entered the NCAA transfer portal last week, was seeking more playing time for his final collegiate season. Pettigrew graduated from LSU this summer and is eligible to play immediately. The 6-foot-7, 254-pound St. Augustine High graduate has recorded two catches for 17 yards in his LSU career. Pettigrew joins a McNeese State program with several LSU ties. McNeese coach Frank Wilson is entering his first season, and he was LSU's associate head coach, running backs coach and recruiting coordinator from 2010 to 2015. Orgeron's son, Cody, is also the team's projected starting quarterback. Orgeron said in a Tuesday morning interview with WNXX-FM, 104.5's "Off the Bench" that the door was open for Pettigrew to return. "I told him, 'Go test the waters. If there's something that fits you, go," Orgeron said. "If not, come back." "It's his senior year," he added. "He wants to play." - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU tight end Jamal Pettigrew has entered the NCAA transfer portal, according to AL.com. The 6-foot-7, 254-pound senior entered the Tigers football program as a four-star prospect out of St. Augustine High in New Orleans, and, after four years in Baton Rouge, which included sitting out 2018 with an ACL tear, Pettigrew is moving on. Pettigrew recorded two catches for 17 yards in his LSU career. LSU coach Ed Orgeron told the Baton Rouge Rotary Club Wednesday that the Tigers are "better at tight end than we've been in a long time." Five-star true freshman Arik Gilbert is expected to see plenty of playing time this season. The 6-foot-5, 249-pound Georgia, native was the Gatorade National Player of the Year in 2019, when he led Marietta High to the 7A state championship. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  Moved from the defensive line to the offensive line prior to spring practice earlier this year, UL junior Masry Mapieu tweeted that he has entered the NCAA transfer portal. A one-time Nebraska commit, Mapieu - from York High in York, Nebraska - was "dropped from Nebraska's 2018 recruiting class over concerns he wouldn't academically qualify," according to a Omaha World-Herald Report in 2018. The 6-foot-4, 285-pounder also held offers from Power 5 programs including Iowa and Iowa State while in high school. Mapieu appeared in 12 of 11-3 UL's 14 games last season, finishing with three total tackles including two in a Sept. 14 win over Texas Southern. - Daily Advertiser

  07/01/20 - A.J. CarterrSo/2023, McNeese, 5-11, 218 (DS#999 RB) + More +

  The Arizona State football program loaded up at the running back position during the last recruiting cycle, adding four-star standouts Dea'Monte Trayanum and Daniyel Ngata from Ohio and California respectively. The Sun Devils also went out and got a community college transfer in Raachad White. Not surprisingly, one of ASU's returning backs has decided to seek a transfer. Sophomore rusher A.J. Carter, who had 19 carries for 50 yards in minimal time last season, has opted to leave the program. The 6-foot, 218-pound Louisiana native played sparingly last season but did get a chance to show what he could do given a primary role when starter Eno Benjamin opted to sit out ASU's Sun Bowl game in El Paso, Texas against Florida State. Carter had four carries for 12 yards with a game-best of 15 yards, resulting in negative yardage on the other tries. He also had two fumbles. - Arizona Republic
