Texas State set a school record Saturday night with 697 total yards in the 65-0 victory against the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions.
Coach Dennis Franchione is 5-1 all-time in season openers with the Bobcats.
The Bobcats scored on the team’s first eight possessions of the game, with seven touchdowns.
"I was proud of our guys,” Franchione said. “I asked them for four quarters of effort, intensity, focus and physical play. I felt like we got that.”
Arkansas-Pine Bluff players said they would hold Texas State to 14 points or fewer in their media day session. Rob Lowe, junior running back, had a different plan in mind.
