  1. This is going to be a great event for Texas State and San Marcos. I’m definitely looking forward to the new facilities and the whole season. Not everyone gets to have FBS football in their back yard.

    The real cheat, is that you can get season tickets TODAY, for barely more than the price of the Tech game tickets. If I recall correctly, tickets to the Tech game are $65, and season tickets can be had for $80.
