From the Field to the Fans: Monday, 9/29/14

Managing Editor Odus Evbagharu sits down with Sports Editor Quixem Ramirez and the Sports Director of KTSW, Warren Schorr, to discuss the Texas State football team's triple overtime thriller against Tulsa over the weekend.

Mayo named Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Week

David Mayo, senior linebacker, was named the Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Week, the conference announced.

Mayo tallied a career-high 20 tackles in Texas State's 37-34 victory against Tulsa, extending his streak to six consecutive games with 10 or more tackles. Mayo is averaging 14 tackles per game, the highest average in the conference.

Texas State's linebacker corps took a hit after Michael Orakpo's, senior linebacker, season-ending injury. The injury granted Mayo more freedom in the middle of the field, as he's averaging 15.3 tackles per game in Orakpo's absence.


Bobcats win second conference game

The Texas State soccer team handed the Arkansas-Little Rock Trojans their second loss of the season, 2-1, in their second conference game. 

With less than two minutes remaining in regulation, the Trojans scored on their own goal, making the final score 2-1. In the 78th minute, Lynsey Curry, junior forward, tied the game with her fourth goal of the season. 

Notebook: Texas State 37, Tulsa 34

What the win means: The Texas State football improves to 2-2 following its 37-34 victory against the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes. The win, in itself, may not look significant when the season is over but don't let that fool you. This was an important win for a football team dancing on the tightrope between mediocrity and legitimacy. Without the victory, perhaps the season torpedoes into a disaster.  Now, with a triple overtime victory under the teams belt, the Bobcats are in a much better position to capitalize on a wide open Sun Belt conference.

Bobcats weather storm, defeat Tulsa in triple overtime

Terrence Franks, senior running back, plopped to the ground in disbelief, overcome with emotion. 

For Franks, a fifth year senior, his game-winning two-yard touchdown run in the Bobcats' 37-34 triple overtime victory was the culmination of years of hard work. He bounced around two coaches, two conferences and he doubted his ability. He pondered transferring from Texas State.


Bobcats remain undefeated in conference play

The Bobcats are on a five-game winning streak, improving their record to 10-7. Texas State scored 102 points, registering 65 kills and four service aces in the match.

Golf places eighth in Golfweek Conference Challenge
