Slight change to Demon football schedule

By Jason Pugh | NSU Sports Information

With the recent changes to the Southland Conference membership, adjustments have made their way to Northwestern State’s 2022 football schedule.

The biggest differences in the new schedule involve a pair of home dates for the Demons, bookending NSU’s conference schedule.

Northwestern State will welcome Lamar University back into the Southland Conference, hosting the Cardinals in the Sept. 24 league opener. Earlier this week, Lamar announced it would return to the Southland a year earlier than expected after its one-season move to the Western Athletic Conference.

The opponent for NSU’s Nov. 19 regular-season finale also was changed.

Instead of facing state rival McNeese to close out the 2022 season, the Demons will host Incarnate Word, which announced in late June it would remain in the Southland Conference and not make an expected move to the WAC.

Here is the 2022 Northwestern State football schedule:

Sept. 3: Northwestern State at Montana

Sept. 10: Grambling vs. Northwestern State (in Shreveport)

Sept. 17: Northwestern State at Southern Mississippi

Sept. 24: Lamar at Northwestern State

Oct. 1: Nicholls State at Northwestern State

Oct. 8: Northwestern State at Eastern Illinois

Oct. 15: Northwestern State at Houston Baptist

Oct. 22: Southeast Missouri at Northwestern State (Homecoming)

Nov. 6: Northwestern State at Texas A&M-Commerce

Nov. 12: Northwestern State at Southeastern Louisiana

Nov. 19: Incarnate Word at Northwestern State
