The Lamar football team hosts the Mississippi College Choctaws (0-2) on Saturday at 7 p.m. LU is 16-11 (.593) at home since the return of football, but is 0-1 all-time against Mississippi College.

All youth football players who show up in uniform will get in for free. The first 1,000 fans will get Lamar megaphones, and the first 400 will also get Lamar replica jerseys.

Last Saturday, LU hung 73 on Texas College while putting up 561 yards of offense to improve to 2-1 on the year.

It’s a pretty common occurrence in college football — schedule teams that you know you can beat. They all do it, year in and year out. But many teams have that luxury.

Take, for instance, Texas A&M. The Aggies play in arguably the toughest conference in all of football — the Southeastern Conference. So their non-conference schedule this season includes Lamar, Rice, SMU and University of Louisiana-Monroe. The reason is because their conference schedule includes LSU, Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Mississippi State, Missouri and Ole Miss.
