What to Know

The Texas State Bobcats are staring down a pretty large 30.5-point disadvantage in the spread for Saturday's game. They will square off against the Baylor Bears at noon ET on Saturday at McLane Stadium. The Bobcats will be seeking to avenge the 29-20 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Sept. 4 of last year.

Texas State made easy work of the FIU Panthers on Saturday and carried off a 41-12 win.

Meanwhile, Baylor fought the good fight in their overtime matchup against the BYU Cougars on Saturday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 26-20. The Bears were their own worst enemy and cost themselves 105 yards in penalties. One thing holding Baylor back was the mediocre play of QB Blake Shapen, who did not have his best game: he passed for only 137 yards on 28 attempts.

Texas State's victory lifted them to 1-1 while Baylor's defeat dropped them down to 1-1. We'll see if Texas State can repeat their recent success or if Baylor bounces back and reverse their fortune.
