For all intents and purposes, the Texas State football season hasn’t even started.
The unofficial beginning of the season for the Bobcats is Sept. 19 against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles.
Just scratch out the first two games of the season. They didn’t happen. Basically.
“These teams are a little more caliber with Sun Belt teams,” said Coach Dennis Franchione. “We’ll see. I feel like (the season) does start now a little bit more.”
As Franchione put it, Texas State played two teams on different ends of the spectrum in their first two games. He wasn’t kidding. Florida State, the ninth-ranked team in the country, beat Texas State by 43 points.
