Texas State announces 2011 football schedule


Texas State has announced its football schedule for 2011, which includes six home games. The Bobcats will play their final season in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) with an FCS-quality home schedule, which includes games against Tarleton State, Prairie View A&M and four Southland Conference opponents.

The Bobcats will open the season on the road against two Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) teams. After starting the season at Texas Tech on Sept. 3, the Bobcats will go to Wyoming on Sept.10. The home opener will be on Sept. 17 against Tarleton State.

Texas State Athletic Director Larry Teis said the emphasis has been on future FBS schedule for the Bobcats, who are moving into the FBS Western Athletic Conference (WAC) in 2012.

“Our 2011 schedule would have been completed earlier, but there were several dates we needed to leave open in case they were necessary for negotiations involving any of our future FBS scheduling,” Teis said. “It was important for us to try to play six home games this season, and, fortunately, we have been able to do that without compromising our ability to finish our 2012 schedule. We are extremely close to being able to announce our 2012 FBS home schedule, and we fully expect to host six home games then, as well.”

On Sept. 24, the Bobcats will begin one last turn against the old rivals as they travel to Stephen F. Austin (SFA).

In October, the Bobcats will play home games against Nicholls State (Oct. 1), Lamar (Oct. 15) and Northwestern State (Oct. 29). In October, the Bobcats will travel to McNeese State (Oct. 8) and Southeastern Louisiana (Oct. 22).

The Bobcats will play at home against Prairie View A&M on Nov. 5, travel to Central Arkansas on Nov. 12 and finish out the season at home against Sam Houston State on Nov. 19.
