At the very least we’ll know about ourselves heading into conference play.”

Texas State opens the home slate with an exhibition game on Nov. 4, against Sul Ross State. The Bobcats will play the first regular season home game, against Kaspar’s old team, Stephen F. Austin, on Nov. 12. Other non conference home games include South Dakota (Nov. 25), Cedarville University (Dec. 4), UT-Tyler (Dec. 21) and LIU-Brooklyn (Dec. 30).

The Bobcats will open their season at Houston on Nov. 8. A week later, the Bobcats travel to Oral Roberts (Nov. 16) before heading to Dallas to face Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown and Southern Methodist on Nov. 20. The Bobcats will face a difficult test out of finals, with games at Texas on Dec. 14 and Utah on Dec. 19.

Texas State will play in the 2013 Cure UCD Classic by Plan BC3, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The Bobcats will play three straight days (Nov. 29-Dec. 1) against Tulane, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Missouri.
