Texas State is now 1-5 on the season and things will not get any easier this Saturday when the Bobcats head to Provo, Utah to take on the #12 Brigham Young University Cougars.

BYU is one of the best teams in the country at 5-0 and they are outscoring opponents by an average of 29.6 points per game.

The Cougars are led by Heisman hopeful, Zach Wilson. Wilson has thrown for 1641 yards this season with 12 touchdowns and just one INT while leading the Cougars to almost 44 points per game.

BYU also has a top ten defense allowing only 288 yards per game to opposing offenses.

“We have to change our style of play a little bit,” said Texas State Head Coach, Jake Spavital. “You have to adapt to where it’s at. If I have to turn it into a ball-control game, I have to turn it into a ball-control game, huddle, and slow it down. It’s just based on where we’re at but if we’re getting a rhythm and we’re going then we’ll press the tempo.”

Texas State is currently on a three-game losing skid after losing last Saturday at South Alabama.

The Bobcats appear to have settled on Brady McBride as their quarterback after he played the entire game versus the Jaguars. McBride has completed 61.03% of his passes this season for 806 yards and six touchdowns.

The Bobcats will need a strong performance from McBride and running backs, Calvin Hill and Brock Sturges, to keep up with the high scoring BYU offense.

Kickoff is set for 9:15 p.m. and will be broadcasted on ESPN.

However, what is lesser known is the area’s haunted spots, which are also rich with the town’s history. Port Aransas at first was not even Port Aransas. The area was actually named Tarpon after its famous trophy fish […]
