Texas Tech Kicks Off 2011 Football Schedule
January 29, 2011
The Texas State Athletics Department announced Saturday that its 2011 football schedule is complete and includes six home games, two contests against NCAA FBS Schools and eight games against SLC teams. Bobcat fans can purchase their season tickets beginning Feb. 1.
“We are very excited that we have finalized our 2011 football schedule,” said Texas State athletic director Larry Teis. “Since our announcement to join the Western Athletic Conference in 2012, we have spent a great deal of time working on our future FBS schedules. Our 2011 schedule would have been completed earlier, but there were several dates we needed to leave open in case they were necessary for negotiations involving any of our future FBS scheduling.
“It was important for us to try to play six home games this season, and fortunately we have been able to do that without compromising our ability to finish our 2012 schedule. We are extremely close to being able to announce our 2012 FBS home schedule, and we fully expect to host six home games then as well. I would encourage everyone to get their 2011 season tickets now to ensure they have an opportunity to purchase seats for our initial season at the FBS level.”
Texas State opens the season with a pair of road games against FBS schools in 2011 when the Bobcats travel to Texas Tech on Sept. 3 and travel to Wyoming on Sept. 10. The team’s first home game will be on Sept. 17 when Texas State plays host to Tarleton State before playing at defending SLC champion Stephen F. Austin on Sept. 24.
The Bobcats begin the month of October with a home game against Nicholls on Oct. 1 and also play host to Lamar on October 15 and Northwestern State on October 29. They play road games during the month of October at McNeese State on Oct. 8 and at Southeastern Louisiana on October 22.
Texas State also plays a pair of home games during the month of November. The Bobcats play host to Prairie View A&M on Nov. 5, before traveling to Central Arkansas on Nov. 12. Texas State ends the season with a home game against Sam Houston State on Nov. 19.
Season tickets for the 2011 season go on sale to last year’s Bobcat Club members and season ticket holders on Feb. 1. The general public can purchase season tickets beginning Feb. 15. Those fans purchasing season tickets for the 2011 campaign will have the first opportunity to renew their season tickets for the 2012 season.
Tickets for reserve seats in the 2011 season are just $90 for adults and $60 for youth 12 and under. Bobcat Club and Texas State faculty and staff can purchase reserved seats for $84. Recent Texas State Alumni who have graduated from 2006-11 can purchase season tickets for $69 each and general admission tickets are on sale for $72.
In addition, Texas State is offering family packages of two adult and two children tickets for $274, while Groups of 10 or more can purchase tickets for $81 each.
For the second straight season, Texas State is offering a Ticket Exchange Program in which fans can exchange unused (not torn) season tickets from any of the first five games for the same number of equal or lesser value tickets (if available) to the final regular season home game against Sam Houston State on Nov. 19.
