Bobcats struggle, yet again, to play a complete game as the offensive minded Warhawks get the win 45 to 27. The Cats came out looking spectacular on offense scoring 20 points in the 1st quarter, but the defense allowed 19. One of the highlight plays on offense was wide receiver Hutch White throwing a 47 yard touchdown to Anthony Taylor on a trick play. After the 1st, the Bobcats couldn’t move the football at all due to being held scoreless in the 3rd and 4th. Warhawks QB, Caleb Evans, had an outstanding game putting up 433 yards and three touchdowns. Anthony Taylor pulled his weight for the Cats rushing for 102 yards, and 52 yards receiving with a touchdown. The defense for the Bobcats just couldn’t stop the Warhawks, and gave up 589 yards of total offense. The long ball was a huge problem for the Texas State secondary, and ultimately cost them the game. Coach Withers had very little to say after the game, and said in the post game presser, “I have never seen that many passing yards in a game before.” He could’ve been exaggerating, but it is unlikely. The Cats fall to 1-5 on the season and 0-2 in Sun Belt Conference play. Bobcats have a chance to get on the right page when they take on the Louisiana Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns, and then head to Carolina to take on the Chanticleers.
The next game against the Cajuns will be on Thursday, and will be nationally televised on ESPNU. The kickoff will be at 6:30 with a 6:15 pregame on KTSW.
