Slowly but surely, construction crews are putting together the Bobcat Club/T-Association Pavilion in the southwest corner of Bobcat Stadium.

Original plans called for construction to be finished by the home opener, but those fell through. An updated time frame puts the completion around the last home game Nov. 23 against Western Kentucky.

We’ll post construction updates throughout the process.

College Football: Construction and practice tidbits

First of all, Texas State sports fans, how about an updated picture of the construction at Bobcat Stadium.

Take a look at the newest lower-level section at Bobcat Stadium (Tyler Mayforth).

While construction crews were hard at work building the North Side Complex, the Bobcats took to the practice fields for their 10th spring practice. In total, Texas State is allowed to have 15 practice sessions, two of which need to be without pads.

Two of the Bobcats’ final five practices will be scrimmages, beginning with tonight’s (Friday) inside Bobcat Stadium. Texas State will then host the Maroon and Gold Spring Game next Saturday.

When the Bobcats scrimmage tonight, they’ll feature a full kicking game (kick/punt returns, field goals, punts). How many plays Texas State runs will base on how healthy the team stays as well as how the flow of the game progresses.
