UTSA, You Guys Are All Right

  • Amidst the legendary verbal smack talk via Twitter which set the precedent of what the future rivalry games between these two school will hold, there was actually a game. UTSA walked off into the sunset with the HEB trophy with a 44-14 victory but not before fans packed the stadium for the third biggest crowd at Bobcat Stadium with 31,333 in attendance. See you next year in the Dome, Roadrunners.

Licking Wounds

  • Several Bobcats were injured this weekend in the loss to the Roadrunners including key losses in defensive end Ishmael Davis (torn ACL) and receiver Mason Hays (fractured fibula). Hays’ fellow wideout Thurman Morbley suffered an ACL sprain and he will be questionable this week against Wyoming.

Best Of The Rest

  • Texas State played host to four Permian High School players.
  • The Bobcats will face Wyoming this Saturday in a matchup in Laramie pitting projected (by some accounts) number one pick in next year’s NFL draft quarterback Josh Allen against a defense has been tested mightily especially in the secondary. Allen has faced his own struggles with three touchdowns to three interceptions and a 2-2 Wyoming squad faced with a dozen injuries.
  • Inside linebacker Clifton Lewis shed his usual number 12 for 24 in tribute to fallen Midwestern State player Robert Gray who died after suffering a neck injury last weekend after making a tackle in a game against Texas A&M-Kingsville. Lewis and Gray were teammates at Hightower High School in Missouri City, Texas.
