Kaleb Barker threw for 363 yards and a school record six touchdowns in a route over Texas State.

After a 21 yard Robert Brown Jr touchdown run cut the Trojan lead at 14-10 Troy would go on to reel off three touchdowns in the next six and a half minutes to make it a 35-10 whomping at halftime.

Another Barker touchdown in the beginning of the second half was followed up by 10 Bobcat points to make the score 42-20 at the end of the third.

A 21-point fourth quarter for Troy put away Texas State, capped off by a game ending 64 yard pick-six by Trojan linebacker Carlton Martial.

Barker threw his record breaking six touchdowns to five different receivers, including two to running back Trevon Woolfolk who also had a rushing touchdown.

Bobcat quarterback Tyler Vitt was harassed by the pressuring Troy defense as he threw for 263 yards a pair of touchdowns but also was picked off four times.

As a team Texas State rushed for 153 on a 5.7 yard per carry average.

Troy only out-gained Texas State by 55 yards of total offense but turnovers just removed any competition from this game.

Texas State’s time-of-possession woes continued again being out gained in that category and also were penalized 8 times.

Next up for Troy (5-5, 3-3 Sun Belt) is a matchup with Louisiana next Saturday and Texas State (3-7, 2-4 Sun Belt) will look to rebound as they visit Boone to take on the No. 25 ranked Appalachian State Mountaineers.
