Bobcats Finish Season 2-10

The Texas State Bobcats finished their second season under Head Coach Jake Spavital on Saturday with a record of 2-10 after losing the season finale 49-14 to #20 Coastal Carolina.

The Bobcats were outmatched by the Chanticleers falling behind early in the first quarter and never found their way into the ballgame.

The Bobcats had their ups and downs all season.

Texas State showed early promise pushing top-level programs like SMU and Boston College to the brink but was outclassed later in the season by some of the best teams in the Sun Belt.

The Bobcats spent the majority of the season trying to find consistent play at quarterback. Both Brady McBride and Tyler Vitt had some excellent games as well as games they’d like to forget.

McBride finished the season with 1925 yards and 17 touchdowns through the air, while throwing seven interceptions and completing 61.35% of his passes.

Vitt finished with 933 passing yards, nine touchdowns and six interceptions, completing 60.66% of his passing attempts.

Coach Spavital seems to have settled on McBride as the quarterback, but this battle will be a storyline to watch in the offseason.

Texas State will have a chance at returning their entire starting offense.

While this was wide receiver Jeremiah Haydel and starting center Reece Jordan senior seasons, the NCAA is not counting this season towards any player’s eligibility or clock.

Both Haydel and Jordan could return along with the rest of the starting offense if Texas State decides to renew their scholarships.

The Bobcats will look to build upon their improved offensive play this season.

On the defensive side of the ball, Texas State will need to find some answers if they hope to improve in 2021. The Bobcats allowed 38.2 points per game and a Sun Belt Conference worst 494.9 yards per game.

With the Bobcat’s season now complete, Spavital and his coaching staff will hit the recruiting trail as they start to build for the 2021 campaign.
