Texas State football became bowl eligible for the first time in school history Nov. 2 with a 37—21 victory over Idaho.
The Bobcats became the second fastest program in history to become bowl eligible after joining the Football Bowl Subdivision. Marshall University was the fastest program to reach bowl eligibility after joining the FBS in 1997.
When Texas State became bowl eligible, the team possessed a record of 6—3, but went on to drop its final three games to end with a .500 record on the season. The only other team to lose its last three conference games in the Sun Belt was Georgia State, which lost 12 games.
