Ready or not, here comes Texas Tech.
Well, Texas State travels to Lubbock on Saturday — but you get the idea.
This will be the third year in a row the Bobcats face the Red Raiders. Back in 2011, Texas State held a lead at halftime and threatened to break it open before turnovers destroyed any hope of a win. Last year Texas Tech made sure Texas State never stood a chance and put it on Dennis Franchione’s team from the onset. The Bobcats didn’t help themselves either in a 58-10 loss.
“That’s all the motivation you need, man,” Texas State junior cornerback Craig Mager said Sunday night. “They dropped more than 100 on us the past two times we played them. If you can’t be motivated for that, you shouldn’t be playing the game.”
