The dog days of summer is making its presence felt throughout the country, but the thought of college football makes it more tolerable. Cox Sports Television’s 2021 college football schedule season begins in less than two weeks.
The last time that the University of West Florida hit the field, they were lifting an NCAA Division II National Championship trophy in McKinney, Texas after defeating Minnesota State. That was in December of 2019. The long-awaited return of the Argos opens the CST schedule on September 4 as UWF travels to Lake Charles, Louisiana, to face McNeese. The contest against the Cowboys will be the first of six televised for UWF.

Southeastern Louisiana and Nicholls have been voted as the preseason favorites with McNeese and Northwestern State tabbed as spoilers.
