Texas State football will play games this year against the two defending Sunbelt Conference co-champions, one of which will appear live on ESPN2.
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.
