It wasn't pretty, but Tech pulled away from Texas State to go to 4-0. Listening to Kliff Kingsbury's post-game interview, the coach seemed to acknowledge that in spite of Tech's record, there is work to do.
Davis Webb and Baker Mayfield both played, Webb looked better, but then was pulled late after an interception. The game was 13-7 in the third quarter when Texas State found out that you can't expect to shut down Tech's offense forever. Up until then, State had played pretty well defensively, while their offense couldn't put much together.
Jace Amaro continues to be the target of choice for the Raiders, why not with his size and speed. Tech still needs a running game, but they've gone 4-0 and now go into a bye week with a chance to make hay in conference.
Texas State's Tyler Arndt didn't strike fear in the hearts of Tech's defense. Neither did anyone else. This did a huge disservice to the Bobcat's defense who held off the onslaught as long as possible. Find some offense and the Bobcats might have something.
Texas State welcomes Wyoming in a game that would be a huge win if they can pull it off.
