THIBODAUX - The Nicholls State University football team will close out its home schedule with a Thursday night showdown against Southeastern La. in the River Bell Classic.
Kickoff at John L. Guidry Stadium is scheduled for 6 p.m.
Before the game, Nicholls will honor its 15-member 2012 Senior Class. The seniors will be looking to continue the Colonels' home winning streak in the River Bell Classic series, which stands at five games. Southeastern (4-6, 4-2) took the trophy back to Hammond last season with a 31-14 victory at Strawberry Stadium.
The Colonels head into the matchup hoping to avoid going winless in conference in back-to-back seasons for the first time since joining the league in 1991. Nicholls is also aiming to put an end to its six-game losing streak, which includes two games at home.
