Keys To The Game: Idaho

This week, the Bobcats make their longest road trip of the year to Idaho. State rolled the Vandals last year in San Marcos and in order to do that again they'll have to follow these two key points.

Drew's Two Keys

1. Stop the Pass

This shouldn't be difficult seeing that Idaho is one of the worst passing teams in the nation. However, this is the stronger side of the offense, averaging 6 yards per pass. If the Bobcats plan to win on the defensive side, they have to shut down the pass, especially in the 4th quarter.

2. Stick with the Run

Idaho's running defense is among the worst in the nation as well, and would be ranked last in the Sun Belt Conference if they played here this season. This should be a read option hay day for Jones and Lowe. Jones seems to enjoy keeping the read option which he did on a majority of the play calls last week. With Lowe taking what Jones hands him, and Nutall coming off the bench with 5+ yards a carry, it will keep Texas State's defense fresh and off the field.

What do you think will guarantee Texas State a 3rd straight win? Discuss it here in the 'Cats Den Insider Forum!
