Usually when players and coaches say a game is more about “themselves” rather than their opponent, it’s a euphemism for saying that they have more to work on internally as a team.
This week however, Texas State (1-1) might actually be better served focusing on themselves in preparation for its home opener against No. 6 Houston (3-0). The teams aren’t billed too drastically different.
Okay backup. They’re not too drastically different in theory.
