By the Numbers

We give you a breakdown of how Texas State stacks up so far, by the numbers on offense, and defense.

One look at some of the numbers Texas State is putting up, and it will cause you to scratch your head even more. Despite the lackluster performance against Louisiana, the Bobcats are one of the better offenses, statistically speaking, in the Sun Belt.

(Offense)

Yards per game: 460 (2nd)
Rushing yds per game: 232 (2nd)

Texas State is putting up just as impressive numbers on the defensive side as well.

The Bobcats have leaders across the board statistically. Whether it's the highest rated QB in the conference, the best d-lineman at registering sacks, or the leading tackler in the conference. As Texas State preps for ULM next week, the Bobcats need to translate all their statistical success into wins. If not, it's all in vein.
