Texas State wraps up its extended break from Sun Belt action when it hosts Baylor. After back-to-back contests against Texas last weekend, the Bobcats (22-17) face yet-another Big 12 foe at 6 p.m. tonight inside Bobcat Softball Stadium.

Texas State had its chances to steal a win from the 25th ranked Longhorns on Saturday. In fact, UT was down to its final at bats at Red and Charline McCombs Field and had to overcome a 5-3 deficit going into the seventh inning.

It might have been easy to overlook, but Texas State head coach Dennis Franchione offered a friendly reminder to both teams from his unusual perch inside Bobcat Stadium.

After Tyler Jones connected with Stedman Mayberry for a four yard go-ahead touchdown late in Saturday’s Maroon and Gold Spring Game, Franchione — who was in the press box at the time as a color analyst — echoed the following refrain over the PA system inside Bobcat Stadium: “There are still 30 seconds to go guys.”

Franchione’s words proved to be prophetic.
