The Nicholls State University football team dropped to No. 13 in the STATS FCS Top 25 poll.

The Colonels (1-1) fell to the Tulane University Green Wave (1-1) 42-17 this past Saturday and dropped from No. 11 to No. 13 in the poll.

Nicholls plays one more road game against the McNeese State University Cowboys (2-0, 1-0 SLC) until they return to John L. Guidry Stadium. They face the Cowboys Saturday at 6 p.m.

The Cowboys beat the Houston Baptist University Huskies (1-1, 0-1 SLC) 51-34 this past Saturday and the Northern Colorado University Bears (0-2) 17-14 Sept. 1.

Last season, the Colonels knocked off the Cowboys 37-35 in its season opener at Manning Field when current senior kicker Lorran Fonseca booted a 32-yard field goal as time expired. It was the first time Nicholls defeated McNeese in eight straight meetings.

The Colonels hope to pull off a win against the Cowboys, who stand at No. 16 in the STATS FCS poll.
