The Texas State Football team took a tough loss to the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns Saturday night in Lafayette, Louisiana 31-3. Coming into the matchup, the Bobcats were trying to pull off an upset against arguably the Sun Belt Conference’s second best team.

For the second straight week, Tyler Vitt started at quarterback with Gresch Jensen still on concussion protocol.

The ‘Cats were able to contain the nation’s third ranked running attack for the first half to only one touchdown and a 7-3 lead because of Joshua Rowland’s 33-yard field goal, but the second half was all Cajuns.

The Cajuns were able to score three touchdowns in the second half behind the rushing of Elijah Mitchell, Raymond Calais, Chris Smith and Levi Lewis, who combined for 296 yards on the ground and two touchdowns.

The Cajuns were also able to move the chains passing the ball, as quarterback Lewis threw for 183 yards and two touchdowns to Calais and receiver Nick Ralston.

The Bobcat offense was able to move the ball down the field in the second half, but were unable to capitalize because of turnovers.

After getting the ball to the Louisiana 29 yard line and 7 yard line on two seperate drives, interceptions were thrown in the Cajun red zone and end zone.

Vitt led the Maroon and Gold in passing and rushing, with 206 yards in the air, and 38 on the ground.

After rooming with Vitt last year, the connection with receiver Trevis Graham Jr. still seems to be intact, as he led Texas State in receiving with 6 catches for 52 yards.

This loss moved the Bobcats to 2-6 this season, and 1-3 in the Sun Belt Conference. The ‘Cats will return home and move their focus to homecoming night in San Marcos, where they’ll face the South Alabama Jaguars next Saturday. Kickoff will be at 2 p.m. on Jim Wacker Field, and the ‘Cats will hope to get their third win of the season.
