Southeastern Louisiana has strong 2019 schedule

(STATS) - Southeastern Louisiana hopes a strong nonconference schedule will prepare it for title contention in the Southland Conference this year.

The Lions slipped to 4-7 overall, and 4-5 in the Southland, in coach Frank Scelfo's first season.

They will host five-time defending Ohio Valley Conference champion Jacksonville State in their season opener on Aug. 31 before visiting MEAC member Bethune-Cookman (Sept. 7) and SEC member Ole Miss (Sept. 14).

Southeastern will play four of its nine Southland games at Strawberry Stadium, including against all three 2018 playoff teams: Lamar (Sept. 21), UIW (Oct. 12) and Nicholls (Nov. 21). The Lions also will host Stephen F. Austin (Nov. 2).
