What to Know
The Texas State Bobcats and the Baylor Bears will face off at 7 p.m. ET Sept. 4 at Jim Wacker Field at Bobcat Stadium to kick off their 2021 seasons. Returning after a rocky 2-10 season, the Bobcats are aiming to prove that the past does not define them. Likewise, coming off of an uninspired 2-7 last-season record, Baylor has set their aspirations higher this year.
A couple last-season stats to keep an eye on: Texas State was second worst when it came to yards allowed per game last season, with the squad giving up 494.9 on average. Baylor experienced some struggles of their own as they ranked ninth worst in the nation with respect to yards per game last year, where the team accrued only 310.2 on average. So maybe these sore spots will just cancel each other out if things haven’t changed too much in the offseason.
Since the experts predict a loss, Texas State will need to dig deep. Perhaps they’ll be able to flip the script and come out with a big victory.
