We're talking about two of the worst teams in college football here. This is going to be some ugly, ugly football. However, for the sake of the article and the pick, Texas State has been the better of these teams and has had far more success at home than the Warhawks have had on the road. I'll take the Bobcats by a touchdown but I'm not crazy confident.
