The Texas State Bobcats are now a third of the way through their 2020 football season with a record of 1-3 after a 24-21 loss to Boston College in Chestnut Hill, MA last Saturday.

The Bobcats 1-3 record does not tell the whole story of their 2020 season thus far. This Bobcat team is one of the best in recent memory.

All three of Texas State’s losses have come by a combined 13 points all in one-possession games.

Texas State’s opponents in those games have yet to lose a game.

In week one, Texas State took on the SMU Mustangs (3-0). The game came down to a failed onside kick opportunity for the Bobcats as they lost 31-24.

In week two, the Bobcats welcomed rival UTSA (3-0) to San Marcos. Texas State fell behind early, but was able to fight back before eventually losing in double overtime 51-48 due to special teams mistakes.

The Cats got their first and only win of the season thus far in week three at ULM (0-3). The Bobcats dominated from start to finish winning 38-17.

Last week, the Bobcats were on the road at Boston College (3-0). Boston College was a heavy favorite going into the game but the Bobcats played well and even held a 21-7 lead in the third quarter.

However, Texas State was scoreless in the fourth quarter and the Eagles fought back, winning on a field goal with three seconds remaining.

The Bobcat football program looks like it has turned a corner and is headed in the right direction. Texas State is a few breaks away from being 4-0 in Coach Jake Spavital’s second season.

The key for the Bobcats now will be learning how to win in close games.
