Instate foes the Texas Southern Tigers and Texas State Bobcats take the field in college football action in week two.

The Texas Southern Tigers  rode a strong defensive effort in kicking off 2018 with a 26-16 victory versus the UTPB Falcons. Texas Southern held a 363-297 yardage edge but were a bit sloppy with three turnovers and ten penalties.

Glen Cuillette led the Tigers in the air by hitting 19-33 for 235 yards and a pair of interceptions and three touchdowns.  Brad Woodard was the top runner for Texas Southern with 78 yards on ten carries while Bobby Hartzog caught a 39 yard TD pass and had a 37 yard run. The Tigers special teams had a PAT blocked and returned by the Falcons for two points.

The Texas State Bobcats were outclassed on both sides of the football in a 35-7 defeat at Rutgers as a 17 point underdog to fall to 0-1. Texas State was outgained 423-169 and held a 4-3 turnover edge in a somewhat sloppy contest.

Bobcats quarterback Willie Jones III completed just 6-19 with an interception with Jah’Marae Sheread catching a 37 yard pass for the biggest offensive play for the offense. Jones and Anthony Taylor topped the Bobcats on the ground with 33 yards and 35 yards respectively. Texas State scored on a 51 yard pick six courtesy of Kordell Rodgers while Rutgers recovered a fumble in the end zone.

Over is 4-0 in Texas State last 4 home games and Texas State are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game and Texas State are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating less than 275 total yards in their previous game.

The only thing I’m sure of in this matchup is I don’t care for ether team so I’ll just take the points…

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
