We have reached week three of the college football season and in this game it’s a non conference showdown between two teams from Texas.
The Texas State Bobcats make the trip to Gerald J. Ford Stadium to take on the SMU Mustangs. This is the first time the two teams have met since 2008.
Texas State Bobcats
The Texas State Bobcats have had their issues to start the season and the biggest reason is because of the schedule they have played.
In the first game they took on Texas A&M and in their last game they took on a Wyoming team coming off a win against Missouri.
The defense hasn’t been great to start the season, but the biggest issue so far this year has been scoring points. Against the Aggies, they only scored seven points, and against Wyoming, they only scored 14 points and in this game they need to be better if they want any chance to keep it close.
At quarterback the Bobcats are led by Gresch Jensen who has struggled throwing for only 160 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions.
Of course the defense is going to need to be good, but if they want any chance in this game, it’s all going to come down to the offense being better.
On the other side of this matchup is the SMU Mustangs who have looked good to start the season and if they don’t make a bowl game it would be shocking, and honestly, the goals should be higher than a bowl game.
In their last game they took on a very good North Texas team and the offense was elite putting up 49 points on the way to a blowout loss.
At quarterback the Mustangs are led by former Texas Longhorns star Shane Buechele and so far this year he has thrown for 652 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception.
In this game the Mustangs need to run up the score, and try to make this game a shootout. The higher scoring this game is the better the chance they can come out with a big victory in this game.
