Texas State Bobcats Football Schedule
Football is king in Texas and nowhere is this more evident than in San Marcos,
Texas when the Texas State Bobcats being Sun Belt Conference play each season. Bobcat Stadium is definitely the place to be
in the fall when it fills up with thousands of die hard Texas State Bobcats fans ready to cheer the home team on to another
big victory. The Bobcats are coming off a somewhat disappointing 2013 season where they finished 6-6 but were second to last
in the Sun Belt after going only 2-5 in conference. The Sun Belt Conference is generally loaded with talent and every game
is a close battle, but this year the Bobcats appear to have an excellent chance of turning things around and making a big
charge towards the top of the conference standings. Be there right from the start for what could be a historic year at Bobcats
Stadium in 2014.
The 2014 home schedule kicks off on August 30th at Bobcats Stadium when the Arkansas - Pine Bluff Lions
come to San Marcos. The home opener is always exciting and the Bobcats could use a big home win to start off a bounce back
season. On September 13th the Navy Midshipmen come to town and they always bring a big group of supporters so be sure to get
tickets for this one to give the Bobcats some much needed support. October 4th brings the Idaho Vandals to Bobcats Stadium,
followed by a showdown with defending conference champions the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns on Tuesday October 14th.
If the Bobcats are hoping to prove that they are once again contenders in the Sun Belt Conference, a win against the Ragin'
Cajuns would be the way to do it. Two more home games remain on the schedule following that big game. The first on November
8th against the Georgia Southern Eagles and the season finale against the Arkansas State Red Wolves on Thursday, November
Despite coming off of a disappointing year in the Sun Belt Conference there are high hopes
for the Texas State Bobcats this season. Last year was a bit of a rebuilding year for the Bobcats and they still managed some
big wins and impressive moments and if the 2014 squad can take those successes and build upon them the team should be able
to fare well in conference play. Quarterback Tyler Jones will be entering his second year as a starter, following a promising
freshman campaign and he will once again be targeting leading receiver Bradley Miller making for an explosive offense that
can exploit any defense they face. Head coach Dennis Fanchione has been laying the groundwork for a successful program since
arriving in San Marcos two years ago and this could be the season when Bobcats fans start experiencing the fruits of his labor.
This could be a landmark season in San Marcos and you can be there right from the opening kickoff with tickets from StubHub.
