Texas State’s 2018 schedule was released Tuesday after the Sun Belt announced its conference slate for the season. 

The Sun Belt will be playing divisional play for the first time this year. Texas State will be a part of the west division alongside Arkansas State, Louisiana, Louisiana-Monroe and South Alabama. The east division consists of Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, Georgia Southern, Georgia State and Troy. 

Texas State will begin its season on the road against Rutgers on Sept. 1. The Bobcats return to San Marcos for their season opener against Texas Southern on Sept. 8. They begin Sun Belt play against South Alabama on Sept. 15 in Mobile, Alabama. 

Texas State plays in the I-35 Showdown against UTSA on Sept. 22 inside the Alamodome in San Antonio. 

The team’s bye week comes before hosting Louisiana on Oct. 6. The Bobcats play a Thursday night game against Georgia Southern on Oct. 11 inside Bobcat Stadium, which will be featured on ESPNU. 

Texas State’s season continues on Oct. 20 in a road matchup with Louisiana-Monroe, and then plays its final non-conference game against New Mexico State on Oct. 27 at home.

The Bobcats travel to take on Georgia State on Nov. 3 and then return to Bobcat Stadium to take on Appalachian State on Nov. 10. 

Texas State’s final road contest comes against Troy on Nov. 17. The Bobcats finish the regular season at home against Arkansas State on Nov. 24.

All times are to be determined. The Sun Belt will play the inaugural Sun Belt championship game on Dec. 1 between the winners of each division, which will be hosted by the divisional champion with the best overall conference winning percentage.
