A 4-7 record last year for the Huskies featured just one win on the road and they will be tasked with a road game against a FBS opponent to start the season.
The Texas State Bobcats however managed just 2 wins last year – with one coming over FCS opponent Incarnate Word.
The Bobcats were beaten badly too in many of their losses so there’s only room for improvement.
Houston Baptist Huskies
The Huskies last year averaged just 18.8 points per game while allowing 34.8 points per game.
Their struggles offensively came from the passing game where they managed just 170.5 passing yards per game while allowing 257.5 passing yards per game to their opponents.
They also only converted 33 percent of their third down attempts. They allowed their quarterback to be sacked 30 times last season and were just 16 of 25 on field goal attempts.
There are a lot of bad statistics for the Huskies so expecting that even a portion of their performance is improved is expecting a lot. The Huskies could be in for a long season – starting with their opener.
Texas State Bobcats
The Bobcats had the third worst offense in the FBS last season – scoring just 15.9 points per game. They struggled in all facets of their offense and that did the defense no favors.
An offense as bad as Texas State’s was last year would expose any defense.
The Bobcats converted just 28% of their third down attempts – which also ranked 3rd worst in the FBS and another statistic showing how they handcuffed their defense.
The Texas State defense was on the field for the 9th most amount of time per game last season.
A full offseason would surely give the team a chance to improve on their mistakes but also forget about how poorly they played.
A new season is a clean slate for everyone and I would anticipate Texas State will come out very eager to make this season much different than last.

Both teams were very poor offensively last season and for teams like these, it can be the most difficult thing to improve with such low recruiting power. I would expect this game to be low-scoring and ugly.

Texas State certainly will have more talent than Houston Baptist and coming off a 2-10 season, there’s no way they will overlook an opponent. But their offense is lacking so they won’t exactly run away with this one.
