The Texas State Bobcats should be big favorites here at home, as they have a clear edge in terms of talent. However, let’s not act like Texas State is a world beater and its offense has been on the struggle bus through 3 games. The Houston Baptist Huskies will certainly be the more motivated team, and they’ve had an extra week to prepare. All that has to count for something. I’ll take a shot with the road dog, grabbing the points with the Huskies.
