Nicholls to open against three FBS programs

Thibodaux, LA (Sports Network) - The Nicholls football program will play three FBS programs for a second straight season as part of a 12-game 2013 schedule announced on Thursday.

The Colonels will open the season by visiting Oregon (Aug. 31) from the Pac-12, Western Michigan (Sept. 7) from the Mid-American Conference and Louisiana- Lafayette (Nov. 14) from the Sun Belt Conference.

"I feel like our 2013 schedule will be the most challenging schedule in Nicholls football history," fourth-year head coach Charlie Stubbs said. "All three of our FBS opponents are excellent programs, so it will be a great opportunity to compete and improve as we'll play in tough environments that will prepare us for the Southland Conference."

Nicholls will play five home games at John L. Guidry Stadium, starting with NAIA member Langston (Sept. 21) and Division II Arkansas Tech (Sept. 28). The Colonels also will host fellow Southland Conference members Northwestern State (Oct. 12), McNeese State (Oct. 26) and Central Arkansas (Nov. 16).

Also within the Southland, Nicholls will visit Stephen F. Austin (Oct. 19), Lamar (Nov. 2), Sam Houston State (Nov. 9) and Southeastern Louisiana (Nov. 21).

Nicholls only beat NAIA Evangel in a 1-10 season this past year.
