The Texas State University Bobcats will host the game against defending Sun Belt champions, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Tuesday, October 14, at 7 p.m.
This game will air live on ESPN2 and is the only game airing in the country on that day.
"It sounds silly, but these games are actually really huge for our school’s reputation, and it puts us on the map," Professor Dale Blasingame said. "So, having a prime time game, with no other games on TV, it’s huge, and we need to take advantage of it. So, I really hope the stadium’s full."
This is the second time in the school’s history that they have had a game air on a premier network. Head football coach, Dennis Franchione, sent out a message to the university last week calling everyone to come out and support the football team.
He also challenged the school as a whole to show the nation who they are at Texas State.
"I really enjoy events like these that give us all a chance to show our pride in our school," said Lauren Sumner, a junior at Texas State. "I’m excited to see how many people come out, and whether or not we fill the stadium. I think it’ll be a game to remember, especially when we win."
The city of San Marcos, as well as the students, faculty and staff of Texas State University, is all encouraged to flood the stadium Tuesday at 7 p.m. and show the nation your Bobcat Pride.
