Weber State and McNeese State are scheduled to play a football home-and-home series beginning in 2012.
The Wildcats and newly hired football coach John L. Smith will open the 2012 season at home against the Cowboys of the Southland Conference. Weber State will make the return trip to McNeese State, located in Lake Charles, La.
"We are excited to finalize a series with McNeese State and are looking forward to our games with the Cowboys," WSU athletic director Jerry Bovee said. "We have been trying hard to schedule a home-and-home series with another FCS school and we feel this will be a great series for both teams."
