Bobcats Fall To Texas Tech At Home

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 09:47 PM CDT
The biggest football game in Texas State University’s history took Saturday night at Bobcat Stadium in San Marcos.

All eyes were on the Bobcats who faced off against Texas Tech in the second game of their inaugural season as member of the Football Bowl Subdivision, college football's highest level.

In their first FBS game, Texas State upset the University of Houston on its home field despite being 36 point underdogs.  So, it’s no wonder Saturday’s game was a big test.

Texas Tech’s visit to San Marcos marks the first time in history that a Big 12 team takes the field on the Bobcats’ home turf.

"The University is excited, the community is excited, the alumni base is excited, the student body is fired up," says Dr. Larry Teis, Texas State Director of Athletics.

Tickets for the showdown were in high demand leading up to game day. Thousands merged in Bobcat territory for the anticipated event that left some Texas State fans disappointed.

The game nearly doubled its previous attendance record with over 33,000 spectators filling the stands. The game was the first played at the newly renovated Bobcat Stadium that includes a new North End Complex that increases seating capacity.

The turnout was a success but the Bobcats lost the magic they had the previous week against Houston. Texas Tech defeated Texas State 58-10, which was a similar outcome to last year’s match up. The Bobcats suffered a 50-10 loss in Lubbock last season.

The Bobcats will host Stephen F. Austin on September 22. Texas Tech is set to play New Mexico at home next Saturday.
