TROY, Ala. — For three consecutive weeks, Texas State entered halftime of a game with an established Sun Belt Conference opponent within striking distance. Each time, however, the opponent pulled away and handed the Bobcats a lopsided defeat.
Last Friday, it was Troy’s turn. Texas State wasn’t happy to oblige, but it did.
A 14-point hole in the third quarter proved to be too much for the Bobcats to overcome in the final game of the regular season. Texas State fell to the Trojans by a score of 42-28 and hopes of an at-large bowl bid went out the window.
