Texas State still thinks it’s a better team that its record indicates.

The dream season is cut short, but for the Rattlers, it was worth the ride.

San Marcos (8-4) pulled out all the stops Friday night against No. 14 Vandegrift (10-2), fake field goals, surprise onside kicks and reverse passes, but Travis Brannan proved to be the sole difference-maker in the Rattlers’ 63-14 area finals loss to the Vipers.

After a Brannan touchdown, San Marcos needed a quick answer and looked to its big-play receiver on the ensuing kickoff.

From here on out, Texas State probably won't win games pretty.

Thursday night's 16-3 victory over hapless Louisiana-Monroe in front of 14,003 fans inside Bobcat Stadium on Senior Night had all of the elements of a contest that pitted two foes with a combined record of 3-16 prior to kickoff.

Yet, in the midst of a three-game losing skid of their own, the Bobcats settled for winning the Sun Belt's battle of cellar dwellers ugly.
