Texas State (0-1) outplayed SMU (1-0) in nearly ever facet of Friday's game and still lost.

Shooting percentage? Check. 3-point shooting? Check. The defensive rebounding battle? Nearly even. Yet the Bobcats dropped its season opener, 64-56, inside Moody Coliseum in Dallas. The lone stat to separate the two teams Friday afternoon? Free throw shooting.

Stop if this sounds familiar. Texas State’s early start couldn’t be sustained for an entire game.

The Bobcats’ quick strike opening possession was a distant memory come the time the final whistle blew and Idaho (6-4, 4-2 in the Sun Belt) celebrated its first bowl berth since 2009 with a 47-14 win over Texas State (2-7, 0-5 in the Sun Belt) inside Bobcat Stadium Saturday night.
