Post Pop the Colonels: 11/15 game thread
Texas State needs to win today to stay alive. Will the Bobcats find a way to stop the triple option or will Nicholls State continue its recent dominance? These questions and more will be answered in less than three hours.

San Marcos, Texas - The Texas State football team looks to win its second straight game when the Bobcats return home to play host to Nicholls in a Southland Conference game on November 15 on the Jim Wacker Field at Texas State. Texas State enters the game with a 6-4 overall record and a 3-2 Southland Conference mark after winning 38-24 at Southeastern Louisiana on Nov. 8. The Bobcats also look to win their first home game since beating Texas Southern 63-39 on Oct. 4.

Texas State enters the game tied with McNeese State and Northwestern State for second place in the Southland Conference standings with a 3-2 league record.

Nicholls enters the game with a 2-5 overall record and a 2-3 Southland Conference mark after suffering a 47-37 loss against Sam Houston State in Thibodaux, La. The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for the Colonels after Nicholls had beaten McNeese State 38-35 and Central Arkansas 20-17.

Bringing the road home

By Tyler Mayforth
Sports Reporter
Through 10 games this season, there has been a glaring difference between the way Texas State plays at home and on the road.

When the Bobcats are away from Bobcat Stadium, they look more at ease and ready to play. Texas State jumps out to large leads and can put the opponent away easier.

Once the Bobcats return home for games, they don’t look as relaxed. Texas State seems timid in front of its home crowd and lack any cohesion.

“I don’t know what’s so different when we play on the road,” Bobcat senior defensive end Donovan King said. “We’re always together, so we’re always able to know what each other’s doing. Not to keep an eye on everybody, just making sure everyone is focused on the game.”

Texas State has been able to keep the focus on the road, to the tune of a 4-1 record. At home, the Bobcats are 2-3, so obviously something unnerves them during the week.

So, in order for his team to feel more at ease, Texas State head coach Brad Wright changed things up a bit. The Bobcats will be staying in a hotel tonight, prior to Saturday’s game against Nicholls State.

Wright is trying his best to mimic a road game for Texas State. It’s the most he can do without renaming Bobcat Stadium or having the fans wear opposing colors.

Just about to head out the door to the game. They can do this. I am hopeful they are focused and the crowd is larger than the NWS game. :-||
