Last year's meeting: Texas State held Louisiana-Monroe to 192 yards and 3.1 yards per play in its 21-14 loss last season. The Warhawks capitalized on a pair of interceptions from Tyler Jones, sophomore quarterback, and the defense stifled the Bobcats’ passing offense.
The team is in an identical situation this year—a week removed from a 24-point loss to Louisiana-Lafayette—and the season is teetering on the edge. A loss drops the Bobcats to below a .500 record for the first time this season. The Bobcats need to make up ground in the standings before they enter the difficult portion of their schedule with six games remaining, including matchups against Georgia Southern and Arkansas State.
