The Bobcats have dropped 2 of their last games and that can weigh heavily on the minds of the Bobcats players, but the difference is this game will see the Bobcats offense coming in and having the dual threat of quarterbacks be able to control the game rather easily here as the Bobcats do better offensively to hand the Chanticleers and upset loss. Final Score Prediction, Texas State Bobcats win, but grab the points 31-28.
