Three players to watch

Heading into Texas State's matchup against the Georgia Southern Eagles, here are three pivotal players to watch.

David Mayo, senior linebacker: The first key point for Texas State to pull off the upset is stopping the run. The Georgia Southern Eagles have an FBS-best rushing attack, gaining 404.2 yards per game. Texas State counters with David Mayo, the FBS leader in total tackles.

The performance at the linebacker position has a huge impact on whether or not an offense’s run game is effective. Mayo has to fly around the field and be a force in the trenches if the Bobcats have any chance of slowing down the Eagles’ run game.

Women's golf to play in Schooner Fall Classic

The Texas State women's golf team is participating in The Schooner Fall Classic at Belmar Golf Club, Oct- 4-6.

The team placed 15th in last year’s event, finishing with a 63-over-par-904.

“We know the golf course a little bit better,” Coach there is some course management, and there is a drivable par 4 there,” Coach Mike Akers said. “The cold front came through last year, the north wind started blowing, and it was really hard to manage. We are excited to get back there and play better.”
