About Bill Peterson
You wanted bowl-level football, and you’ve got it. Now that the Texas State Bobcats are bowl eligible, the next step is getting into a bowl.
The Texas State men’s basketball team under Danny Kaspar is, obviously, a work in progress. Two games into the new season, the Bobcats still are searching for their first win, and they really don’t figure to come that often for a while.
By improving their record to 6-3, the Bobcats made themselves bowl eligible in just their second season of bowl-level football. Of course, being eligible isn’t the same as being invited. Considering that the Bobcats are new to the scene and two of their wins have come against lowly Idaho and winless Georgia State, they probably have more work to do.
Forgive Sun Belt Conference Commissioner Karl Benson if he lets loose an “Eat ’em up!” now and then during the next five or six weeks. To the gist of something Benson said earlier this week, the league has a bit riding on the Texas State football team.
The Texas State football team will try to stay on the victory side of life Saturday evening against a South Alabama team that will not make it easy.
Texas State gave up a surprising touchdown early Saturday, then settled down for a 24-17 win against winless Georgia State at Bobcat Stadium.
For most of Saturday evening, the Texas State defense kept the Louisiana-Monroe (ULM) offense out of the end zone. Unfortunately, the Texas State offense couldn’t keep the ULM defense out of the end zone.
