Bobcats Fall to 1-7

The Texas State Bobcats are now 1-7 on the season after losing to the Ragin Cajuns of Louisiana-Lafayette 44-34 this past Saturday in San Marcos for Homecoming.

The matchup with the Ragin Cajuns was the Bobcat’s first game back at Bobcat Stadium since the UTSA game on Sept. 12.

It was a sloppy game for both teams as they combined for seven turnovers.

Brady McBride was picked off three times while completing 14 of 32 pass attempts for 166 yards and a touchdown.

Brock Sturges had a career day for 129 yards and two scores, including a 40 yard run on the opening play of the game.

Even with a strong day on the ground of a combined 239 yards for the Bobcats, it wasn’t enough to overcome the inability to protect the football in the passing game and poor defense.

The Bobcats gave up 614 yards to the Louisiana offense. This comes one week after giving up 579 yards to BYU.

The Bobcat defense ranks second to last in the Sun Belt Conference in yards given up per game at 481.3.

It won’t get any easier this week as the Bobcats welcome 4-1 Appalachian State to San Marcos.

The Mountaineers have the best offense in the Sun Belt averaging 482.4 yards per game.

The Bobcats will need to make some quick adjustments as they attempt to break a five-game losing streak.
