SAN MARCOS – Texas State University director of athletics Dr. Larry Teis has announced that the Bobcats have moved their football game against Texas Southern to Oct. 4 on Jim Wacker Field at Bobcat Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 6:00 p.m. The game was originally scheduled for September 13.
“Texas Southern had a problem with their schedule and we were able to accommodate them by moving the game,” Teis said. “As a result, we now have a two-year agreement and they also will play here in 2009.”
This season’s game marks the eighth game played between the two schools. Texas State owns a 7-0 record in the series that dates back to 1988. The last time the two schools met was on Nov. 9, 2006, when the Bobcats won a 41-21 decision in San Marcos.
The game is one of six home games for Texas State in 2008. The Bobcats open their season Aug. 30 against Angelo State before playing Southern Utah on Sept. 27, Texas Southern on Oct. 4, Central Arkansas on Oct. 18, Northwestern State on Nov. 1 and Nicholls State on Nov. 15.Email | Print
