The next two games are critical for the Texas State football team.
Coach Dennis Franchione wouldn’t want it any other way.
Arkansas State is already bowl eligible. Texas State will enter tonight’s matchup fighting for an opportunity at a bowl game.
Franchione said the Red Wolves, who are coming off of a 37-32 loss against Appalachian State, will see some of their players return from injury.
The NCAA report lists three injured athletes as probable to play against Texas State, the most notable of whom is Arkansas State junior running back Michael Gordon, who has 844 rushing yards this season.
Colby Targun, senior safety, says the defense is expecting a versatile opponent with three receivers who each have over 400 receiving yards.
